Bicycle Accident

While getting ready this morning, I heard some sirens ringing through my street.  So I’m driving my car down the street and notice a little traffic jam going the opposite way on Merrie Trail.  There I see the police car blocking off traffic to this street, and I notice a bicycle laid out in the middle of the street.  I slow down, because the curiosity got the best of me.

I then witness the police officer helping the bicyclist up from the street.  He was definitely walking with a limp.  The thing is, he was wearing a bright green neon jersey.

I don’t know what happened, but I ride past this street almost everyday.  (Today I had to drive in as again, I was not up in time).  There are two one way streets that meet here.  If the bicyclist was going around the curve on the right side, a driver may have come by and gone straight into the second (outer) street as the bicyclist was navigating past that street to continue down the inner street.

Here’s hoping he’ll have a short recovery.

    At least it sounds like he walked away from it, that is always a seriously good thing.
