    Default Bus/cyclist accident on MD 28 between Poolesville and Darnestown

    A bus collided with a cyclist on Wednesday on MD 28, but the details are scant:

    The cyclist is critically injured.

    That section of the road has decent bike lanes, though there is a spot
    in the valley that sometimes fills with gravel. If the details are
    accurate, this is roughly the section of road where the accident
    happened:

    The road is a favorite route of sport cyclists in the area - even the sections of road without bike lanes and 50mph speed limits. Be careful out there (and best wishes for the cyclist in question).

    I hope the cyclists makes it. One of the original reports I read said something like "the bus had stopped on the wrong side of the road", but I didn't catch that detail in your links.

    Also, WTF kinda sh*t is this?

    Our Collision Reconstruction Unit is on the scene there and will begin their investigation in the event the bicyclist dies, but we still donít know his condition right now
    So if the cyclists makes it, they won't bother investigating?
