One Man Injured in Bicycle-Car Crash on Vassar Street and Terminal Way
Reno, Nv (August 7, 2020) – On Thursday, a bicyclist was injured in a bicycle-car crash on Vassar Street and Terminal Way.
The accident happened at around 6:30 a.m. on August 6 when a car traveling eastbound on Vassar struck the bicyclist in a crosswalk going westbound.
The victim sustained minor injuries as a result of the crash.
Moreover, the police said the involved driver claimed the sun was in his eyes before the accident happened.
Meanwhile, authorities closed Northbound Terminal for some time but have been reopened.
Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to lookout or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph, thus you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.
Coping With Crash Injuries
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings. Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
Here are some steps that we need to do whenever we are involved in a crash:
Before anything else, seek medical attention if you have been hurt.
Then, get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
Also, collect as much information as possible: insurance and contact information of people involved in the accident and pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Documentation of fault, and whatever else that can be used for evidence.
Do not forget to file a police report or incident report by calling 911.
