Fairfield – Cyclist With Serious Injuries
A cyclist was run over by a vehicle in Fairfield Saturday afternoon.
A few minutes past 2:00 p.m., a 60-year-old Westport motorist was attempting to leave the parking lot of a local Home Depot when he/she crashed into a bicycle that was traveling north on Grasmere Avenue. The 50-year-old Bridgeport cyclist was trapped under the vehicle and sustained multiple injuries. He was quickly extricated by responders and taken to Bridgeport Hospital. He is still listed as serious but is expected to recover. The case is currently under active investigation. Authorities have not identified anyone yet and are expected to release more details in due time.
In many instances, bike accidents involve injuries and require hospitalization. Many incidents can be considered unintended but could still involve some form of reckless behavior. All of these cases will be thoroughly investigated until negligent parties are brought to justice. Injured parties are advised to review their legal options as these could help them cope and find closure.
