Always lots of discussion about car vs. bike accidents. But what really gripes me is when I hear about a car that hits a biker and then takes off.
This incident happened several days ago — last Saturday. It appears the cyclist was not in the wrong.
In the Comments section of the TV station’s web site, Ms. McNair adds, “It’s a MIRACLE that i wasn’t killed since i went over the hood and off the back of the car. i also have extensive whiplash and nerve pain shooting from my head wound down through my right shoulder. but you know, it’s kinda hard to SHOW that.”
You can argue all you want about whether bikes should be allowed on busy city streets, but the point here is that leaving the scene of the accident and not rendering aid is criminal.
