Bicyclist in roadway bleeding after being struck by car on Route 5
A bicyclist is down in the roadway bleeding after being struck by a car on Route 5 near Colonial Boulevard. Town of Batavia Fire Department is responding, and Mercy medics and law enforcement are on scene. A lane of traffic is blocked.
UPDATE 1:42 p.m.: The driver of the vehicle said he was on Colonial Boulevard about to turn onto Route 5. He said he looked left and right then as he pulled onto Route 5 "all of a sudden the bike was in front (him)." The male bicyclist suffered facial abrasions but is alert and conscious.
The driver didn't do it right then.
You're supposed to look left, then right, then left again!
Raymond's method is the one I was taught at an early age when crossing the street - and if I'm going to use that method to save my buttocks from getting creamed by a car, the least I can do is follow the same procedure to keep me from harming others.
