57-year-old Cyclist Hospitalized in Bicycle Crash on Congress Street
Old Town, CA (May 06, 2021) – On Wednesday, a bicyclist was struck and injured by two vehicles on Congress Street.
The San Diego accident happened at about 8 p.m. near the five-way intersection with San Diego Avenue and Ampudia Street.
Apparently, a 30-year-old driver southbound on Congress Street tried to make a three-point turn in the narrow roadway.
However, the first left turn took his vehicle into the path of the bicyclist.
Then, the bicyclist hit the passenger’s side of the turning vehicle and fell into the road. That is where a 51-year-old woman struck him with her vehicle.
Right away, the medics took the cyclist to a hospital with serious but non-fatal injuries.
Meanwhile, there were no specific details on the man’s injuries, or the types of vehicles involved in the accident.
The San Diego Police Department’s traffic division investigates the crash.
It is important to remain wary of those you share the road with. Particularly, it is important to pay attention to cyclists and motorcyclists, who are more vulnerable to road accident injuries.
