Vehicle accidents involve bicycles can be severe and often cause injuries to cyclists. The consequences of these actions can be extreme and sometimes tragic. It is essential for all drivers to remember the responsibility they have to share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians and equally important for bicyclists and pedestrians to be vigilant when near roads.
On May 4, the Boston Police Department received a report of a vehicle accident involving a bicycle and one vehicle. The accident was reported to have caused injuries and occurred at 595 Massachusetts Avenue. The incident was called into the police around 9:30 at night, and first responders were dispatched to the scene quickly.
Upon arrival, Officer Carolyn Ivens and other first responders secured the scene and directed traffic around the area. Medical care was given to one individual, but the extent of their injuries is still under review. No fatalities were reported.
Injuries and Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can be particularly lethal as bicyclists are not protected from impact with a vehicle. These accidents can leave them with injuries that have a negative impact on their lives. All drivers must keep this in mind and share the road, and bicyclists must also remain aware and follow the rules of the road at all times.
