Bicyclists sometimes face a number of threats when they ride, from poor road conditions to a distracted or drunk driver. In San Francisco, the high number of bicyclists and busy streets can lead to disaster. When a bike accident takes place, it could cause a fatality or the need for long-term medical care. As a result, it is imperative for bicyclists and drivers to always follow traffic laws and be cautious every time they take to the road.
According to law enforcement officials, a bicyclist turned left abruptly, putting himself directly in front of traffic. After he made the turn, an SUV struck the biker, causing the 73-year-old man to hit the windshield.
