Injured cyclist

Injured cyclist

A cyclist was injured on Edmondson Ave yesterday @ 3PM.  He seemed coherent but was strapped to a stretcher and taken by ambulance to the hospital. He was an African American, (30-40??), thin, wearing Kelly Club jersey, rode a white Cervelo. 2 women at the scene took his bike and gave names to officer.  I spoke to the officer in charge.  I have the officers name and number if there are any questions or ticket amendments that may be needed.

Does anyone know this guy?  Does anyone know of his condition? Hope he is OK.

Hi Charlie
Hope the rider is OK.Thank goodness he was coherent and could give information.What if he wasn't?
I wonder if the BBC could consider launching a quick ID system that would help officers or helpers at the scene of an accident to identify bike riders.

I realize there are confidentiality issues and yes we should  have organized rides and yes we should all check in....but if one is riding alone for some reason, gets off course or is hurt along the way.... or in another state.... if we could help just one person, one time, it would be worth it to me.

I have heard that there are stickers-
that go on helmets, wrist bands for bikers,  maybe something on the bike itself? You all have wonderful ideas waiting to be put to good use. Everyone is about safety.Welcoming your thoughts and Happy Thanksgiving.

Re: Injured cyclist

My concern is always the police report.  Often they do not get it right.  As the cyclist is taken to the hospital the police obtain the information from the car driver, thus 1 side of the story.  I have helped a few injured cyclists (Balto city) correct their police reports. This often involves contacting city council person, police precincts, police chiefs etc.  So the sooner one gets the report amended the better it is.

Bikemore(Baltimore's bike advocacy group) has this, a bike crash card to print out.
