A Car and Bicyclist Collide On Street in Ballard

A bicyclist and a small passenger car collided at about 7 p.m. on Tuesday at the intersection of 14th Avenue Northwest and Northwest 58th Street in Ballard. The cyclist sustained minor injuries in the bike accident in Washington.

According to a local news source, the 14th Avenue Northwest Visioning Project has been working on improvements to the street for the past several years. Curb bulbs and a rain garden were installed at the same intersection of the accident last winter.

Seattle police spokesperson Mark Jamieson said that in the case of last night’s collision, the bicyclist was at fault because he failed to yield to the vehicle.

“The cyclist did sustain some minor injuries, an injured knee and maybe had a hurt hand or finger,”Jamieson said. “He was checked out of the hospital as a precaution.”

A member of the steering committee and East Ballard Community Association said that they have also asked the Seattle Department of Transportation to move the parking on 14th Avenue Northwest and Northwest 60th Street further back to improve visibility for crossing.
