Although riding a bicycle is an excellent way to exercise and can help save money, when a car hits a bicyclist it can lead to serious injuries and even loss of life. In San Francisco, there are busy streets and a lot of bicyclists, so everyone on the road should be vigilant and try to avoid a bike accident at all costs. When these types of accidents take place, they are particularly dangerous and often cause life-threatening injuries.
After being struck by a vehicle while riding his bike, a 72-year-old man from Morro Bay was taken to the hospital with very significant injuries. The accident, which took place on Highway 1 right before 13th street, occurred in the evening at roughly 6:18 p.m.
