Cyclist, Vehicle Collision Sends Victim to Hoag

posted: February 7th, 2013 03:53 pm | 7Comments

A collision involving a vehicle and a bicyclist occurred about 2:50 p.m. today at Jasmine Avenue and East Coast Highway, police confirmed in an email.

A witness said the injured person was a man, and that he was alert with passersby trying to help him.

Police spokeswoman Kathy Lowe said one person was transported to Hoag Hospital with unknown injuries, but no further information was immediately available. Emails sent to fire officials seeking additional information were not immediately answered.

East Coast Highway through Corona del Mar has sharrows markings on the roadway, reminding motorists and cyclists that they must share the road. The Newport Beach City Council approved adding sharrows last summer, and they were installed this fall; read an earlier story here.

Wait, you mean the little painted bicycle stencil in the pavement didn't prevent an accident on Coast Highway? Unbelievable!

What! Nanny"s (Nancy's) Sharrows are not working. Cyclists need to pay more attention.. Like stopping at red lights , stop signs, etc.

There's nothing quite like the vitriol of selfish, bitter motorists.

Guess the little paint experiment didn't work out to well for the guy now at Hoag. Slow down and pay attention? What fantasy land do you live in? The same thing will happen 100 more times and nothing will change. Don't want to get hit by a car don't play in the street.

Sharrows painted on Coast Hwy. Most cyclists don't have a clue as to how to ride them.
