    Default 19th Street Tuesday

    Accident yesterday on 19th around Dupont Circle. Anyone know anything of this?

    Seems the cyclist (a CaBi rider) swerved to avoid being doored, and was subsequently hit. Taken to hospital.

    Anyone know how the rider is doing?

    DCist makes it sound much worse, although I can understand the urgency with a possible head injury.

    A cyclist is facing life-threatening injuries after a car crash in Dupont.

    D.C. Fire and EMS transported the cyclist to a local hospital as a Priority 1 case, meaning life-threatening, critical injuries, according to spokesperson Oscar Mendez. The incident happened around 1:15 p.m. and units responded to the scene at the 1100 block of 19th Street NW at around 1:19 p.m.

    Washington Post link, which at least as of now, doesn't give much information.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...rcle/#comments

    Is this perhaps the first very serious accident to occur to a Cabi rider?

    It may be the most serious accident so far, but I don't think it's the first serious accident. There have been a couple (like, literally one or two) other pretty bad ones, IIRC.
