Bicyclist killed in Renton crash

The Seattle Times reported in today's paper that a 56-year-old Seattle man died in the early morning on Thursday, December 11, 2008 at around 6:30 am on South 130th Street and Renton Avenue South in the Skyway (Seattle) neighborhood, when the bicycle he was riding collided with a car driven by a 79-year-old Renton man. 

Apparently the 1997 Lincoln Towncar made a left turn in front of the bicyclist causing the fatal bicycle / car accident.
The King County Sheriff's Office is still investigating.

We often see these types of car accidents where the driver fails to yield the right of way to the other vehicle, car, motorcycle, bicycle, and even pedestrians.  Usually it's just inattention of the driver not seeing the other person who is going straight through the intersection and has the right of way.  And in the case of motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrian, the smaller silhouette makes it harder to see them.  This does not relieve them of responsibility or liability for causing the collision.
