A Washington bicycle rider was struck by a car and seriously injured in Seattle last week. Seattle Police say that the accident was the cyclist’s fault.

The cyclist accident took place at the intersection of First Avenue Northeast and North 145th Street in downtown Seattle. The bike accident took place during the morning commute – at approximately six in the morning on Thursday. According to witnesses and the Seattle Times, the cyclist ran a red light and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The man, who has not yet been identified, was rushed to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries, including a head injury, facial injuries, and a broken femur. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the Seattle cyclist accident.

The bike accident stalled traffic in the area for several hours as the man was removed from the scene and as police investigated the accident.
