Eureka Injury Bicycle Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Eureka personal injury lawyer. A bicyclist was seriously injured after being hit by a car in Eureka on the evening of Friday, May 18, 2018. Reports stated that the collision took place in the downtown area during high-traffic hours. Medics transported the man to a local hospital for treatment. Eureka Police Department (EPD) and the Humboldt Fire Authority both assisted with responding to the traumatic crash. EPD noted that the accident involved only one vehicle in addition to the bike and did not report any further injuries.
According to EPD reports, the accident happened at about 5:25 p.m. close to the intersection of B Street and 4th Street near the North Coast Co-op. EPD’s Sgt. Ed Wilson reported that multiple witnesses said the bicycle entered B Street at a quick speed. After entering the street, the rider was struck by a gold Saturn sedan that had been traveling west in the number three roadway lane.
