An accident with assumed homeless people and a cyclist has left the cyclist in the hospital with a bleeding brain. The full details of the accident can be found on the Daily Camera's story on it.
This is very tragic given that this is the second cyclist to be put in the hospital for serious head injury this week. A few days ago a cyclist riding at night with no lights or helmet was struck by a car, read that story on the Daily Camera too
Here are some of the comments on the Daily Camera's website related to these two incidents..
"Up until a year ago, I never wore a helmet. But unfortunate stories such as this one educated me of the need to use one - all the time - even around the block."
"Gee, maybe "mixed use" or "share the road" isn't such a good idea. Cyclists complain about getting buzzed by cars when they can't keep up with traffic but when cyclists cause injuries (even their own) when they, in turn, buzz pedestrians we're supposed to blame a homeless man's backpack strap? Boulder gets more and more entertaining by the day."
