A bike rider was left with life-threatening injuries Tuesday night, following a collision at the same intersection where cyclist Amelie Le Moullac was killed in 2013.
According to a San Francisco Police Department dispatcher, police were called to the intersection of 6th and Folsom Streets at around 8:18 Tuesday night.
Two vehicles, described by KRON4 as "a Lexus and a Prius taxi," had collided at the intersection.
The crash sent the Prius careening into a passing cyclist, KRON4 reports.
The cyclist was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that are considered life-threatening, a police spokesperson says. As of publication time, no further information was available from police on the cyclist's condition or the circumstances of the crash.
On the morning of August 14, 2013, cyclist Amelie Le Moullac was killed when a truck driver made a right turn into the bike lane at the same intersection. SFPD initially blamed Le Moullac, then was forced to apologize when the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition turned up video footage of the crash (that the police hadn't bothered to look for). Though criminal charges were never filed against the truck driver, a jury in a civil case found him negligent in January of this year.
SFPD's Traffic Collision Investigation Unit, which was also responsible for the Le Moullac case, is investigating Tuesday's crash. They ask that anyone who witnessed last night's collision call them at 415- 822-8147.
