Accidents involving bicycles can be especially devastating as bicyclists are not protected by a vehicle. While bicyclists often wear protective gear like helmets, impact with a vehicle can be quite catastrophic. Drivers must remember that they share the roads with bicyclists, and they need to watch out for them. Bicyclists must also remember to remain vigilant at all times.
On May 26, an accident involving a vehicle and a bicycle was reported to the Boston Police Department. The police received a report of the incident that occurred around 10 in the morning on 1640 Washington Street.
Officer Philip Kearney was the first to arrive at the scene and other emergency personnel arrived shortly afterwards. Upon arrival, first responders found that the accident had caused injury to the bicyclist. Medical care was administered at the scene. The extent of the injuries is still being determined, but the injuries do not appear to be serious.
Injuries and Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents tend to cause serious injury to bicyclists. These accidents can be extremely devastating and even fatal. It is essential that all drivers remember the duty of care they have to one another. Drivers must share the road with bicyclists and pedestrians, and bicyclists must remain cautious and also follow the rules of the road.
