Vehicle-related accidents can happen anywhere and out of nowhere, and the consequences of these accidents can be devastating. It is essential for all drivers to remember the responsibility they have to one another and to keep in mind that negligent driving can be potentially deadly. Accidents that involve bicyclists can be especially catastrophic as these individuals are not protected by a vehicle.
On June 4, the Boston Police Department received a report of a vehicle accident involving a cyclist. The incident was reported to police around 5:45 in the evening and occurred on 602 Commonwealth Avenue.
Officer Annette Zambello was one of the first to respond on the scene, and other first responders arrived shortly afterwards. Upon arrival, they discovered that the cyclist had sustained injuries in the accident, and medical care was administered at the scene. The extent of their injuries is still under review. However, no fatalities were reported. The scene was secured within the hour.
Injuries and Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can be particularly devastating as bicyclists are not protected in the same way that people in cars are. Collision with a vehicle can do serious harm to people riding bikes. It is essential for all drivers to share the road and check for bicyclists and pedestrians, and cyclist must also follow the rules of the road and remain vigilant.
