A car struck my bike, with my 3-year-old son in the attached child seat, as I was riding eastbound on Edgewood Avenue toward Edgewood Park in October. The driver, to avoid slowing down for another car turning left, cut from the left lane into the right lane and banged into my handlebars, knocking us toward the curb.
The driver never stopped to see if we were injured. The car struck us in order to get to the corner of Ella Gross Boulevard a few seconds early – where the driver proceeded to wait at a red light.
