Teen Cyclist Suffers Moderate Injuries in Another Pacifica Bike Collision

Police say the driver stopped for a two-way stop sign but the oncoming bike rider was struck as the car pulled out.

Another 19-year-old male, this one from Pacifica, is in the hospital after getting hit by a car on Manor Drive in Pacifica Thursday morning.

It was just a couple of weeks ago that a 19-year-old male from Concord was struck by a car in Pacifica.

At approximately 10:52 p.m. on Thursday the Pacifica Police Department and North County Fire Authority were dispatched to Vista Mar Avenue at Manor Drive on a report of a car and bike collision.

The vehicle was heading southbound on Vista Mar Avenue and at Manor Drive stopped for the two-way stop, according to Pacifica Police.  Traffic for east and west Manor has no stop sign at this intersection.  The bicyclist was heading westbound on Manor Drive.  The 18 year old driver stopped, then pulled out to turn eastbound onto Manor Drive.

The bicycle struck the vehicle, with the bicyclist sustaining moderate injuries.  He was transported to a local hospital for treatment is expected to be released Friday, according to police.

It was on Sept. 30 that police and fire were dispatched to the intersection of Crespi Drive and Escalero Avenue on a report of a car and bike collision.

Upon arrival, officers located the bicyclist suffering from serious injuries.

Preliminary investigation into this collision indicates the bicyclist failed to stop for a stop sign and was struck by the vehicle, which had the right of way, according to Pacifica Police.

The bicyclist was transported to an area hospital and was listed in critical condition. Investigation into this collision is continuing by the Pacifica Police Department.

__ I am confused by this report: it conflicts itself by saying there is NO stop sign for East/West travel on Manor (the way the bicyclist was traveling) but then faulting the bicyclist for not stopping: "Preliminary investigation into this collision indicates the bicyclist failed to stop for a stop sign . . . " ___ MY GUESS: When I look up on google maps, it does not show "STOP" painted on the pavement on Manor at the Vista Mar and Manor intersection. If bicyclist was going Westbound on Manor (which does not have stop sign) – and driver Southbound on Vista Mar (which does have a stop sign) -- it seems that it would be the car that pulled out in front of the bicyclist. That's my guess. --- Many well wishes to the bicyclist for a quick recovery.

Cristal, the article explains 2 different incidents, one that happened on Sept. 30 where the bicyclist failed to stop for a stop sign and the other incident just this past Thursday where a cyclist with no stop sign coming down Manor got hit by a driver who made a turn onto Manor off Vista Mar after stopping a stop sign.
