Thanks to a reader for sending a link to this frightening accident that took place back in March 2011. The cyclist recounts his ordeal on Greater Greater Washington:
“On a pleasant March morning in 2011, I was on my way to work, biking south on 14th St NW in the center of the right lane. As I approached W Street, I looked to make sure I had ample time to cross. The light was green. As I left the intersection, an SUV driver made a left turn across traffic, directly into my path. All I could do was hit the brakes hard.”
