Sunset Scavenger vs. Fixie Bike Rider at Golden Gate and Polk

Here’s the scene this morning at around 7:00 AM at the intersection of Polk and Golden Gate in the Civic Center/Tendeloin/Polk Gulch area near City Hall – the aftermath of a collision between a Sunset Golden Gate Debris Box transporter and a green, braked-equipped Masi single-speed bike rider. The cyclist had a helmet and her bike light was still flashing.

It’s hard to say who was at fault at this point. This is one of the “routine” accidents” we have in the City that you don’t hear about unless somebody dies. Are bike accidents increasing in San Francisco? Seems that way.

San Francisco Fire Department Wharf Rats on the job:

Here’s wishing a speedy recovery for the cyclist.
