1 Hospitalized after Berkeley Bicycle Accident

 
BERKELEY, CA (September 25, 2019) – A bicyclist sustained injuries after a car struck him on Shattuck Avenue on September 24.
 
After 8:20 a.m., the officers came to Shattuck Avenue and Addison Street for a bicycle and car collision, stated Officer Byron White, Berkeley police spokesman.
 
According to White, the rider traveled south on the west sidewalk of Shattuck Avenue. He used the crosswalk where a southbound driver making a right turn from Shattuck Avenue onto Addison Street struck him.
 
The 50-year-old male bicyclist went to a local hospital for his leg injury. Meanwhile, the 53-year-old female driver stayed at the scene and helped with investigators.
 
Under the municipal code, bicycle riders except juveniles and police cannot use the Berkeley sidewalks. Cyclists can legally ride in crosswalks but they do not have the right-of-way when they do.
 
It is vital to never drive when drunk and to always be alert for pedestrians and bicyclists. This is especially true when you are driving in the city, especially when you are driving through a parking lot, a busy intersection, or residential area. An unforeseen accident can be avoided by following the traffic laws and being cautious of the road ahead. Such actions can also ensure the safety of everyone.
