Forest Hill Crash Leaves Bicyclist with Serious Injuries

By Alpert Schreyer on June 26, 2012

An accident in Forest Hill has sent a bicyclist to the hospital with serious injuries, according to a recent article in the Bel Air Patch.

The driver, a 27-year-old man, was driving down Maryland Route 24 near the intersection of Maryland Route 23 when, he says, the bicyclist crashed into the side of his vehicle. The driver thinks that the bicyclist may not have seen him or may not have been paying attention. Investigators are still trying to determine how the accident happened.

The accident sent the bicyclist, a 63-year-old man, to Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore for treatment. Rescue workers said that his injuries were not life-threatening and that he is expected to make a recovery.

Bicycle accidents are less common than motor vehicle accidents or pedestrian accidents in Maryland, but they still occur in this state just as they do throughout the U.S. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that 67,000 bicyclists suffer serious injuries in crashes each year, often traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries that can cause permanent disabilities. About 700 people lose their lives in bicycle accidents each year.

Bicyclists have the same legal right to use the roads as motor vehicles, and drivers have a responsibility to pay attention to the road so that they avoid injuring those on bicycles.
