Bainbridge blotter | He swerved left

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:53 p.m. A 70-year-old Bainbridge Island man was injured in a bicycle crash on Ferncliff Avenue.

Police arrived to find the man lying on the side of the road, being tended to by medical personnel. The bike had been removed from the roadway by a passerby.

The man was semi-conscience and having difficulty communicating, though he could recall his name, address, phone number and the name of his wife, though other things he could not recall, including the name of the president.

He said, “I swerved to the left.” When asked, “To avoid what?” he could not recall, and began repeating his name and address.

The cause of the crash was undetermined.

The man was transported to Harborview Medical Center by Airlift Northwest.

The bicycle appeared undamaged. The handlebars had no scuffing or ripping and the brake levers were not scuffed, though the tires appeared very worn.

It was not noted whether he had been wearing a helmet.
