From http://www.reddit.com/r/pittsburgh:

I just drove by the scene of an accident where only the police were on scene. Bicyclist was under a car with people surrounding him or her. I think it was on forbes and wightman… I’m little shook up right now. What’s up with bike/car accidents in this city?

Hope everyone is ok.

Edit: the full quote.

That sucks, hope they’re OK. That would be Sq Hill not Shadyside if the intersection is correct. Dumbass comments already flowing…

I go through that intersection often and it’s not the best. Especially on Forbes headed towards Murray Ave, there are massive undulations in the road that are hard to pick up unless you know the intersection.

Hope everything is okay.

Does anybody know if the rider is okay? Does this group ever visit injured cyclists or send a representative, when this kind of thing happens?

I don’t think anyone here knows who the cyclist was or anything else about what happened. So it’s not possible to visit. In the past, Scott has kindly visited accident victims and kept us informed.

It depends. Sometimes bicyclist or relatives do not want to make name public. As a result we as a group don’t have an opportunity to visit a bicyclist.

There was also another cyclist his on 5th Ave and Shady the other day. He was going straight and an oncoming car turned left in front of him. His is in good shape injury-wise but its only been a few days passed.
