This past week Zach was riding his bicycle with a fellow bicyclist who was in the lead. They were coming out of the Dillon’s parking lot onto Main St.
The driver of the car apparently saw the fellow bicyclist and didn’t realize that Zach was close behind. Hence, the two crashed.
El Dorado firefighters, police, and medics launched to the rescue. Zach was taken to the hospital and diagnosed as having suffered a broken ankle.
Today Zach was delivering Thank You cards.
We are glad Zack wasn’t hurt worse. Let Zach’s story be a reminder to all bicyclists to be sure and wear your helmets. And, even if you have the right of way, car versus bicyclist is always going to come out in favor of the car.
