A scary scene unfolded during rush hour on Linden Street near Weston Road on Wednesday when a cyclist was struck by a car. Wellesley emergency personnel arrived quickly (I happened to see a police car heading toward the scene, and an ambulance going away from it on my way to an event).
An initial report from Wellesley Police described the cyclist as only sustaining minor cuts. A Swellesley reader has commented that the cyclist may have had more severe injuries than that, but the police do not follow up or release additional info in these cases unless they are life threatening (and hospitals won’t release such info for privacy reasons). We’ve not been able to confirm the cyclist’s condition directly.
The motorist involved in the incident stopped and was talking to police about it.
Here’s hoping for a speedy recovering for the cyclist.
