BikeLane.jpgA bicyclist was taken to a hospital after she was struck by a Lincoln Town Car near San Francisco’s Panhandle Tuesday evening, police said.

The collision was reported at 6:17 p.m. near the corner of Fell and Ashbury streets, Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

The victim, a woman between 20 and 30 years old, was on the ground when police arrived but still breathing. She was transported to a hospital and her condition is unknown tonight.

The driver stopped at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Manfredi said.

A mangled bike remained at the scene as police investigated, and the Town Car’s front end and windshield were damaged.

    I like how there is no sign of a driver being involved until the next to last paragraph.

    That’s because bicyclists SHOULD NOT BE RIDING on this part of Fell St. There are designated bike paths just 20 feet to the left of Fell St. No excuse for being on that street. This is just pure arrogance from bicyclists who ride there.
