A lady bicyclist was head south on the Yaquina Bay Bridge when she lost control of her cycle and hit the concrete and fell into the southbound lane. Vehicles stopped and comforted her while she held her shoulder. She was in a great deal of pain. A PacWest Ambulance crew came on scene, scooped her up and whisked her to PCH where she was being treated for a possible broken shoulder. She was apparently riding with her husband at the time.
No name or hometown was given. The width of the pedestrian walkway is very narrow over the bridge, making riding a bicycle on the pedestrian part of the bridge very unforgiving. One false move and there’s no margin for correction. Police recommend that cyclists walk their bike over the bridge, otherwise brave sharing the lane with traffic which can be awfully tight as well.
