Susanna Schick is recovering in a hospital after her hit and run bicycle accident on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. The LAPD is still waiting for witnesses to come forward to help identifying the hit and run driver. Susanna Schick pointed out inconsistencies in the police report from the incident as to the speed she was traveling and whether a car was even involved or not. The police’s interpretation of the incident is that it may not have been a car that hit her because Schick said to them she did not recall the impact. However, she points out the lack of memory may have been from the concussion caused from the impact and that there is no way her injury was caused as a result of a sudden fall on the pavement.
It is always very saddening to read about hit and run accidents. Hit and run driving is a serious crime not to mention the weight of civil penalty is much greater. No jury will find for the hit and run driver even if there may be an argument where the bicyclist was contributorily negligent.
I always think maybe someone could invent a device where you attach to the backside of your bike seat allowing it to record traffic images so that you could simply play that file back later to find evidence of the hit and run driver.
