The Washington State Patrol, in a media release, reports that they are searching for a female bicyclist between the age of 25-35 who was involved in a bicycle accident on the Interstate 90 floating bridge on April 30th. They are also seeking witnesses to the accident.
According to the WSP, the bicycle accident occurred around 3:15pm on the west end of the I-90 floating bridge bicycle path when two female bicyclists collided.
The bicycle accident victim, Brenda Dawson, suffered serious injuries including a fractured pelvis and elbow in the collission.
While the WSP is referring to this incident as a “hit and run,” one photo on the internet shows the female being sought obviously distraught and standing near Ms. Dawson.
Washington law is pretty clear; WA RCW 46.61.755 states that bicyclists are subject to “all the duties applicable to the driver of a vehicle.” Motorists are required by law to stop after an accident and exchange information with the other party after an accident and insure that injured persons get medical care.
Hopefully, witnesses will be found and the female bicyclist involved in the accident will come forward so the facts of this accident are sorted out.
