    Default Crash between cyclist and pickup truck -East-West Highway - Beach Drive intersection

    On March 15 ~3pm, a cyclist going north on Beach Drive was hit by a truck on East West highway and severely injured. He was unconscious, and bleeding profusely through his mouth. Traffic stopped in all directions. Pedestrians, motorists and cyclists tried to help. Ambulances arrived about 12 minutes after collision. No word from witnesses at the scene as to how the collision occurred, nor name of cyclist. Hope he is ok and recovers. This is a dangerous intersection because cars go up to 50-60 mph down East West Highway and cyclists have little time to react.

    I hope the cyclist is ok. Remember this is a crash between a cyclist and a DRIVER. The driver hit the cyclist with his/her pickup truck. The driver may or may not have been at fault, but the pickup truck was simply the tool.
