Houston, TX -- February 24, 2023, a bicyclist was killed after an accident where a delivery van hit them on West Gulf Bank Road.

Man Killed in Delivery Van Accident on W. Gulf Bank Road in Houston, TX

It appears that a 26-year-old man was on a bicycle traveling eastbound through the intersection. From westbound lanes, a delivery van making a lest turn hit the cyclist. This resulted in fatal injuries. No further information about the crash is available at this time.

Considering this is a controlled intersecting, it's important to know what the lights were at the time of the crash. Despite how people tend to treat cyclists, they have every right to be on the road. If the van had a yield light, why weren't they able to see the cyclist? Was it a lighting issue or inattention? Was the van making a protected turn? Is this intersection notorious for similar accidents? I can only hope authorities are asking these same questions, because the victim's loved ones deserve to know what happened here and why.
