It was an unfortunate incident for everyone involved – former Republican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was reportedly involved in a traffic collision with a female bicyclist in West Los Angeles, Sunday morning. What happened? Why was the female cyclist injured? Read on to get a summary of the incident and why it happened.
Law enforcement officers said the female cyclist made an abrupt left turn in front of Schwarzenegger’s car, and he didn’t have enough time to hit the brakes. The victim was rushed to the emergency room for assessment and was treated for minor injuries. Those close to the situation reported that Schwarzenegger was not driving very fast and that the woman is expected to make a full recovery.
Three eyewitnesses reported seeing the woman veer into Schwarzenegger’s lane three times. The female victim was complaining about being in pain at the scene of the accident and remains in stable condition at this time. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played a role in what has been deemed an unfortunate traffic accident.
Schwarzenegger remained on-scene and spoke with the police regarding how the incident unfolded. He reportedly picked up the woman’s bike and attached it to his car and is said to be taking the bike to a local shop for repair.
Police have reportedly determined that the accident was not Schwarzenegger’s fault, and could not have been avoided. This incident serves as a reminder to all of us to be extra cautious when driving and cycling, as even the most experienced drivers can be involved in an accident.
We are thankful that the female victim is expected to make a full recovery and we wish her all the best. We hope that this incident serves as a reminder to all of us to be extra careful when driving and cycling. Stay safe out there!
