Bainbridge blotter | ‘I thought I could jump it’

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

MONDAY, OCT. 30

12:49 p.m. A 69-year-old Bainbridge man hit his head and skinned his hands and knees when he crashed his bike on Grow Avenue.

A construction worker said the bicyclist went past orange cones that blocked off a stretch of Grow where a trench had been opened.

A flagger and several other construction workers tried to stop the man, but he kept going until he hit the trench, which was 6 feet deep.

The witness estimated the cyclist was doing about 35 mph at the time, and the cyclist later told him, “I thought I could jump it.”

When questioned by police, the bicyclist said he did not see anything abnormal until he crashed.
