COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - One person was seriously hurt in a crash in downtown Colorado Springs Tuesday night.

Colorado Springs Police data showed the crash happened around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Boulder and Weber Streets downtown.

Police said a bicyclist was riding north on Boulder Street when they went into the intersection with Weber Street against a red light. The bicyclist was then hit by a driver who had the green light.

The bicyclist got medical attention and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

    Sounds like foolishness on the part of the cyclist, many of whom claim that cyclists “always have the right of way.”

    1. KKTV reports that the cyclist may have been a moped rider, which means they ran a red light as surely as any other vehicle.

  3. AMZ, your rhetoric, in that comical ASCII camouflage, is a large part of the problem as drivers of cars are NOT following traffic laws, and your type of argument simply excuses illegal driving behavior as a simple physics problem. In this article, the “cyclist” (one wonders, at this time of night and that area, it this person was not part of the Lycra brigade, but a member of the, “un-housed”) in question clearly ignored the traffic laws to their peril. Say that. Do not excuse the wantonly bad, nay, illegal, driving behavior of automobiles that occurs everyday in COS. This type of behavior not only impacts cyclists, but motorcyclists and other cars as well. We are ranked currently as one of the worst driving states.

    My introduction to this was on my first training ride in COS, coming down W. Colorado on a clear, late March day. A dark green sedan failed to yield for the stop sign at 28th, and turned right, in front of me. I was able to anticipate and avoid being hit (defensive driving is paramount on a bicycle), that did not make this a case of no harm no foul. If I was in a car, they would have plowed into me.

    Failing to obey traffic laws have repercussions. That is the argument you should make. Not excusing bad driving.

    1. Like I said, cyclists, per capita, violate MTC far more than any motorist, unfortunately this is only shown through the accidents cyclists cause as LEO’s in this community do not have the resources to cite every cyclist that violates the same laws vehicles are to obey. Cyclists should only be on trails or bicycle paths, that way they don’t have to stop at the stop sign, or stay in the bicycle lane (I know the bicycle lane collects all the road debris because next to no one uses them and they are not swept by the city), speed regulations, proper turning signals (Hand Signals), riding past the stopped traffic at a traffic light just to get out in front and impede traffic, the list goes on and on. Yes failing to obey MTC does have repercussions, those are more severe from the seat of a bicycle.

      1. Your list includes things that many motorists here are guilty of, particularly speed regulations, fighting to get in front of slower vehicles, inability to stay in lanes, lack of turn signals, disregard for red lights and stop signs, etc.

        1. Thus going back to my original point, the main difference is an operator of motor vehicles is just as likely to do the same violations as a operator of a bicycle. Therefore, the main difference is a operator of a motor vehicle will have a higher success of surviving an accident whereas a operator of a bicycle has a less of a chance because of the lack of safety features, etc. Expecting cohabitation on roadways where both are vastly different modes of transportation only increases the proclivity of a more serious accident to occur. Thus why it is illegal to ride a bicycle or a skateboard or roller skate or roller blade on a sidewalk there people walk. The same ideology for the one needs to be for all. Cars don’t travel on sidewalks, yet most auto v pedestrian accidents occur in a crosswalk, unless the pedestrian is “jaywalking”. three different modes of transportation, all different from one another yet the only one we segregate is the pedestrians.
          Is that common sense or a flaw in design? For everyone’s safety I would @ssert a common sense approach that all three have different paths to utilize. pedestrians on sidewalks, cyclists on trails and bicycle paths, and motor vehicles on roadways.

    2. Sorry, bicyclist are far worse than any Texan or a Californian behind the wheel of a car. Especially Texans; I swear you guys get your licence to drive from cereal boxes.

  4. No amount of bike lanes will solve stupidity. crossing boulder at Weber requires caution, as it may be somewhat difficult to see west bound traffic coming up the hill from boulder street. (By the way, boulder runs east/west not north/south)

  5. As a former bicyclist, I always followed the Traffic Laws of The State, but have seen some who just do what ever they please, Completely Against The Laws and common sense! I’ve not a single drop of pity for such stupidity!! I even had a police office stop me and suggest strongly, that I ride on sidewalks instead of the road, except for Downtown center. Always With 1)traffic 2) high visibility vest 3) Lights at night! and 4) stop at traffic signals, the Same as if were driving a car or motor cycle. If unable to be making turns in traffic, get Off the bike at intersection corner and Walk it! I could get behind a Bicycle Licence, same as for motorized vehicles, with the tests and all.
