Palm Springs Bicycle Accident
Bicycle Accident Injures Rider in Palm Springs
Yet another unfortunate Palm Springs Bicycle Accident occurred on Palm Canyon Drive in the busy downtown area in February. The bicyclist was heading southbound just before Arenas, when a car pulled out that had been previously parallel parked. The bicyclist was able to move to the left of the lane to avoid the car pulling out. But unfortunately another car was simultaneously merging into the bicyclist lane. The merging vehicle then collided with the bicyclist knocking him to the ground and causing severe injuries. Police and Paramedics were called to the scene and the bicyclist was transported to the hospital.
Authorities are still looking for the car that pulled away from the curb. It did not stop for the accident. It is unclear if they even new that they were a contributing factor to the accident.
