blog home Bicycle Accident Bicyclist Injured in San Diego Crash

By Renee Nordstrand on April 21, 2010

A 24-year-old San Diego woman was seriously injured on Saturday in a bicycle to car collision on Genesee Avenue at La Jolla Village Drive, the San Diego Tribune reports.

The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was riding her bicycle northbound on Genesee when she was struck by a sedan traveling westbound on La Jolla Village Drive.  The cause of the accident is still under investigation, although police have determined that alcohol was not a contributing factor.

Many details of this accident remain unclear. Which person had the right of way? Was distracted driving (eating, texting, talking on a cell phone while driving) a factor?  Did dangerous road conditions cause either the biker or driver to swerve?  By answering these questions, we may begin to see a clearer picture of who was at fault in this situation.
