Update on injured bicyclist Tuesday a.m.?

Original post made by Jennifer, Old Mountain View, on Apr 14, 2009

Wondering if anyone knows what happened to the bicyclist who collapsed or had been hit at Rengstorff and Central Expressway this morning (Tuesday) at about 8:45 a.m.?

When I drove by, she had just gone down and a driver was beside her on the phone making the 911 call. Thankfully several people ran over to the cyclist to aid her. (That's always reassuring to see.) I had to keep driving so as not to block traffic, but I hoped that the cyclist was not seriously injured.

I was wondering the same thing. I overheard via my Caltrain conductor's radio that the cyclist was hit by a car. My train passed by very close to 8:45, and emergency crews were there already.

Thanks, Richard. I'm glad to know the emergency crews got there. I overheard the woman making the 911 call, very upset, yelling at the dispatcher to send paramedics and then hanging up abruptly. She was calling from a cell phone, so I hoped that she had been connected to the right municipality and gave the right location. In moments of stress, sometimes it's hard to remember what to do...
