hit by car in williamsburg, looking for witnesses (bedford ave and lorimer st)
Date: 2009-03-13, 5:51PM EDT
Today, Friday March 13, 2009 at approx. 1:20pm I was riding with traffic on Bedford Ave, approaching the intersection of Lorimer St. I was hit by a silver Chrysler sedan (who was a car service car) turning right on to Lorimer. I was wearing a silver windbreaker, riding a black + red track bike with white rims (yes, with a front brake and yes, I was wearing a helmet).
I counted at 5 to 10 people in the area who I believe saw the accident take place. However, no one would come forward as a witness. One mustached fellow (Thank you, whoever you may be) took pictures, but I didn't get a chance to get his name before leaving in the ambulance. Sadly, he did not arrive until moments after the accident happened.
I was not too seriously injured but suffered pretty nasty bruising on my legs, arm, face, and pretty serious abrasions on my left hand.
I am baffled as to why no one came forward as a witness. I do not believe that at that intersection (Bedford and Lorimer), with multiple people around, two or three very popular restaurants (practically one per corner), not one person saw the accident take place.
If you were in the area and saw it happen, please, come forward. It's the right thing to do.
