Another bike related accident has occurred in the Denver area causing the Denver police to hold an immediate press conference to address this new growing epidemic. According to the Examiner
, the incident occurred off of 8th
Avenue and Wyandot Street when the young cyclist was struck by a car and ended up in the Denver Heath Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries. This past year there were over 250 bike incidents that involved motor vehicles. This number seems to have been on the rise and the Denver police have decided to intervene and figure out a way to prevent these numbers from growing any larger.
Motorists and bikers should be aware of each other and share the road responsibly, according to District 6 Commander Tony Lopez. The Denver Police Department believes that proper education by both parties will help to decrease the number of bicyclist injuries in the Denver area. The police department believes many of these accidents have been caused by the constant construction going on throughout the city.
