UPDATE: SFPD has reversed their earlier remarks, and is now saying that the bicyclist remains in intensive care at San Francisco General Hospital, and is alert and answering questions. They say his injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Though initial reports had a cyclist injured in a collision with a car on Saturday night hospitalized in critical condition, San Francisco Police are saying today that this was actually treated briefly at a local hospital before being released.
They’re now saying that the cyclist hit the car (not the reverse) at 11:20 Saturday night, as the car was stopped at a stop sign on 8th and JFK. According to SFPD spokesperson police Sgt. Lyn Tomioka the 19 year old rider “turned to talk to the other bike rider that was with him, and he hit the rear of the vehicle.” The driver, who remained at the site, was not cited. We suspect that somewhere, Rob Anderson is smiling.
