Vehicle Collision, at Cabrillo Blvd. and Helena. 06/21/23
Recently there have been several bicycle, E bike, and motorcycle accidents and incidents in the S.B. area. Cabrillo Boulevard, is often the scene of many collisions and near-misses. Additionally and separately there was a report of a speeding motorcycle around the same time on Cabrillo.
At 5:14 PM, it was reported that a vehicle may have hit a bicyclist. The adult rider suffered scratches and bruises to his knees and possibly a serious injury to his left arm and shoulder.
It is officially summer, and the downtown areas are teeming with life, much mixed-traffic. People, bikes, E bikes rental vehicles, skate borders, and tourists along with other alt-ped. vehicle types are in a constant flux, plus the evident car-traffic.
Enjoy Summer, and be safe out there. Also, in hopes that the young man recovers quickly and his injuries are not more serious.
