Motorcycle hits van, cyclist thrown

Emergency crews responded to the scene of a vehicle accident today at 5:17 p.m. on Lancaster Avenue, near the entrance to the Columbia Plaza. Reportedly, a motorcyclist traveling east on Lancaster Avenue collided with a westbound van that was turning left into the Plaza parking lot. The motorcycle hit the passenger side of the van near the rear wheel and spun into the opposing lane.  The cyclist was thrown about 50 feet from the point of impact before coming to rest in the westbound lane. The motorcycle's front wheel assembly broke off during the collision.

The female cyclist, who was wearing a full face helmet, was conscious at the scene and was treated by medical personnel before being transported by ambulance. The van, a Chrysler Town & Country LXi, sustained passenger side body damage and a rear driver's side flat tire.  The male driver of the van appeared to be uninjured.

    1. Names are never released immediately, pending charges upon completion of investigation.

      As far as "respect for her", there is plenty, several comments came in that will not be posted. AND there are no photos that show her. Even in the crowd picture of the people standing within a few feet of emergency personnel, she cannot be seen and it was not posted.

      Over six thousand views in 10 hours. If it's happening it's news.

    2. Wait! I have to make a correction. Names often are released through the ignorant comments on Facebook. They also are able to read just enough to misunderstand.

    3. I say this with the most up right respect, I'm sure and positive there were many rude ignorant comments and there were many photos taken that could have been posted but weren't due to respect of the rider. They did do there job and didn't release as much as they could have. The title could have been re worded but in there eyes no matter how u slice it or dice it the bike did hit the van and no matter what the van did in fact pull into the path of the bike and if anyone payed any mind to it that was a witness it did stop in that path at last second so the bike would hit them... I appreciate the fact that the photos that could have been posted were not thank u.... Is there any way for someone to privately contact me about this report.

  3. Having an accident is bad enough. Let the police investigate before blaming fault.

    1. Where is there blaming or fault?
      The FACT is her bike hit the van, it just did. Whether or not that's her fault or the van driver's fault has not been answered or maybe determined. Fact remains, her bike hit the van.

    1. YOU need to read it again. Not one word says it was her fault, those words are NOT there. Maybe you are reading into it.

  6. Does anyone know how the girl is doing now?

    People need to lay off of her. Someone cut her off to make a left turn weather her bike hit the van or not it's not her fault.

    They have camera's at every other intersection in town perhaps the cheap arse boro officials should put one there too?

    Perhaps they could also answer as to why there is none there currently? Maybe that part of town and it's people are not worthy of a camera on the traffic light? Or the townships to cheap maybe even both.....?

    WHen something happens there if a camera was there, there would be no question as to what happens because a lot of bad crap seems to happen there... When you have known crack creatures roaming this town we need all the cameras we can get.
    Just a suggestion I mean if I were that girl I'd want people to be able to look at footage and know I was in the right especially for court purposes then to have ignorant people make assnine comments because they are to stupid to grasp the facts they could watch the truth and know for sure... But I guess those who run this town and get say as to what cameras go where would rather leave you all to guess since there is none there.

  9. Hate to break it to the "experts" here - but a blog is not the final word on anything. I have a feeling there's going to be more to this story than what we have here.

    1. Usually there is more. The "story" also appeared in LNP. No one said or implied that this site was the final word. Personally, I think that bike looked more like a bomb hit it.

  10. FYI people a left turn causing an accident is an at fault, plus on a bike it's full tort...full sueing ability for injuries.
