Good Samaritans help fallen cyclist

Posted by Geeky Swedes on December 29th, 2009

Several Good Samaritans helped a bicyclist this morning, after falling at the railroad tracks along Shilshole Ave under the Ballard Bridge where the Burke Gilman Trail guides people at a right angle to cross the tracks.

A MyBallard reader writes that several drivers got out and helped the cyclist after the accident around 8:15 this morning. “The biker said no vehicle was involved,” he says, “It appeared that he lost control of his bike crossing the (presumably) frozen tracks and fell on his face. The visor on his helmet was broken.” The emailer says that people helping this bicyclist commented on the frequency of these types of accidents. In fact, he saw one several weeks ago at this same location, “He was riding very carefully and going slowly. Thank goodness he was wearing a helmet. The bicyclist today was also saved from more severe injury by his helmet and visor.” (Copyright photo L..P. O’Donnell used with permission. Photo edited by photographer.)
