Let’s start with the good part. The woman who was hit is reportedly doing fine. And her bike basket of brussel sprouts survived the incident.
In the midst of Monday night’s incredibly rainy conditions, a woman bike rider in her 70s was struck by a car crossing the busy intersection at Bellevue and E Denny Way. The rider who was wearing a helmet was taken to the hospital with a fracture and scrapes from the collision.
According to Seattle Fire, a relative of the woman stopped by Fire Station 25 Tuesday to pick up her bike and told the crew she is doing well despite the injuries.
Seattle Fire also reports that her load of sprouts came through the ordeal unscathed. Depending on where you fall on the brussel sprout continuum, that is either good news or bad.
Medics were also called to a car vs. motorcycle crash reported a short time later at 103 Bellevue Ave E but the injuries in the incident were not serious enough for anybody to be taken to the hospital.
