  11. Melyssa Mendoza experienced a bicycle collision while heading across Potrero Avenue on her way to work. The car opposite to her had their left turn signal on. Mendoza thought the driver saw her, but the car continued to turn and struck Mendoza. She fell over her handlebars and landed at the top of her head. Mendoza suffered a sprained neck and had nearly a year of physical therapy after the collision, but according to her, her helmet saved her life. She is currently in talks with the driver’s insurance company and continues to ride as a commuter daily in The city.

     
  12. About a year ago, Steven Villarino suffered a hit and run while traveling along Columbus Street. His front wheel was struck after a vehicle turned into the lane too soon, and the impact jammed his front wheel in the cable car tracks. Villarino crashed onto his shoulder and then his head. He had a helmet on, but the impact caused a broken scapula and 13 hours in an emergency trauma unit. According to the trauma unit, the collision could have been fatal if he wasn’t wearing a helmet. Villarino suffered no brain damage, nor did he stop riding his bicycle. He continues to commute from the Peninsula on both CalTrain and his Trek road bicycle. 

     
  13. In September of 2013, Greg Schuler was bicycling home from yoga in the late evening when a taxi approached very close from behind. It got closer and, despite Schuler yelling so it would not hit him, within seconds the bike pedal got caught in front of the taxi’s wheel, according to Schuler. “My bicycle got pulled under the car, thankfully I didn’t,” he said. Schuler was thrown forward on the street and landed on his right shoulder. The taxi driver stopped and accused him for the collision. Schuler was injured, but is glad he had just come out of a yoga class. He has yet to resolve things with the insurance company.
