Police report: One bicyclist is in critical condition and two other bicyclists sustained serious injured when struck by a vehicle on Bashford Manor Lane.
The accident reportedly happened on Bashford Manor Lane near the Walmart Supercenter when a 2014 Toyota Camry driven by a 32-year-old driver struck three bicyclists. The three bicyclists were riding their bicycles northbound of Mall Road at the Bashford Manor Lane intersection when they were all hit by the same vehicle. A witness states that the Camry was driving above the speed limit when it drove into the intersection.
EMS reports that one of the bicyclists, a 38-year-old woman, is in critical condition following the accident. Both of the other victims suffered severe injuries on their knees, hips and arms. Emergency crews rushed all of the victims to the hospital for medical attention.
