What would you do in a bike accident?
Tonight my dad was in Park Slope and heard a shriek. He turned to see a cyclist had been hit (on 7th Ave, near Starbucks). The driver got out of the car. The cyclist got up from the street, said he was fine. He wasn’t fine. My dad said the guy was bleeding and although he thought he could just get on his bike and continue, he realized his bike was broken so went to the sidewalk to try to fix it. The biker didn’t take down the driver’s license plate or any information. I really hope I am never in such a situation but I’m just wondering, why wouldn’t the biker take down the driver’s information after being hit?
(Another thing, this was after dark and the biker didn’t have any lights or a helmet which I think is extremely unsafe. Maybe he didn’t get the information because he thought he was at fault?)
