A bicyclist who collided with a car on Sullivan Fire Road on Oct. 9 was released from the hospital with non life threatening injuries, according to the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the accident with a helicopter to air lift a 28-year-old man with injuries to his face, neck and back. Lynette Brody, Topanga sector superintendent of California State Parks, said Tuesday the man was wearing his helmet and there were not witness. She declined to identify the man.
Brody said an employee from an nearby Boy Scout testified he was traveling on Sullivan Fire Road up the hill that afternoon and beeping when coming around a curve as a precaution to other motorists on the road. She said the bicyclist was coming around the curve, who reportedly admitted he was traveling 10 to 15 miles per hour, and slammed on his brakes.
The bicyclist went over his handlebars and slammed face first into the front lights of the vehicle.
