Washington – Bicycle Accident
Authorities responded to reports of a crash in Washington yesterday morning.
At approximately 10:00 a.m., emergency crews were dispatched to Nettleton Hollow Road to investigate an accident. According to officials, a bicycle collided with a vehicle, resulting in injuries. EMS crews quickly arrived to tend to those injured in the incident, while other personnel closed down the roadway to help them investigate and clear the accident site. State police advised motorists in the area to seek alternate routes while they processed the scene. More information about the crash, including the identities of those involved, will be released when appropriate.
Riding a bicycle on public roads is inherently riskier to people, so identifying what causes these accidents can help authorities improve road safety for all bicyclists. That said, anyone injured in similar incidents, particularly those involving reckless behavior, DUI or negligence, are encouraged to consult legal experts to determine their options.
