Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…Ottawa cyclists were out on the roads yesterday but sadly, many of their commutes were not safe. Ottawa Paramedics responded to 3 separate Ottawa bicycle accidents in a span of 41 minutes yesterday morning:
-Ottawa paramedics helped a 42-year-old man with scrapes and an injury to his collar-bone after he was hit at Baseline Road and Farlane Boulevard in Ottawa’s east end.
-A 30-year-old man was hit on Prince of Wales Drive near Waterford Drive in Ottawa’s south end. When Ottawa paramedics arrived at the Ottawa accident scene, he was unconscious and was treated for a head injury. He was taken to an Ottawa hospital in serious but stable condition.
-A 25-year-old man was hit while cycling at the intersection of Hunt Club Road and Bank Street in Ottawa’s south end. He suffered an arm injury and lacerations to his knee. He was taken to an Ottawa hospital in stable condition.
These recent Ottawa bicycle accidents bring the issue of Ottawa’ s cycling safety to the forefront. There are far too many cycling accidents and deaths each year in Ottawa. Most of these accidents are avoidable. Both cyclists and drivers need to be aware of their surroundings and respect the rules of the road. We can’t continue to have these, or even worse cycling accidents in Ottawa.
