The cyclist was thrown off his bike and traveled more than 100 feet through the air. When police arrived on scene, they administered a field sobriety test to the at-fault driver and found he had a blood alcohol content of .14.
As an NC injury attorney, I know that when cars and bicycles collide, the cyclist is almost aways badly injured. When you factor in the drunk driving, the bike rider hit on I-85 is lucky to be alive.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash, consider consulting with an experienced traffic accident lawyer. My colleagues and I are ready to assist you in reviewing your specific situation to see if your claim against an at-fault driver has merit.
