Bicycle Accident Investigation
At this time, we do not know all the facts about this case. It’s unknown who had the right-of-way at the intersection. There is a stop sign for Garfield, but not for Locust Street. However, there is a marked crosswalk on all sides of the intersection and drivers must yield the right of way to all pedestrians including bicyclists.
We extend our heartfelt prayers to the injured bicyclist and hope that he or she is getting the best care available for a full recovery.
