Bicyclist seriously injured in collision on Bradshaw Road

A 27-year-old bicyclist was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries following a collision with a vehicle at Bradshaw and Gore roads in Rancho Cordova late this afternoon.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department responded about 4:50 p.m. to a report of a collision involving a car and a bicycle. Witnesses told deputies that the motorist was traveling northbound on Bradshaw in the far right lane and was approaching Gore Road, on a green light, when the bicyclist, traveling westbound on Gore Road, entered the intersection against a red light, said sheriff's spokesman Deputy Jason Ramos.

He said the driver was unable to avoid the bicyclist, who was struck by the front of the car and then hit the windshield, before striking the pavement. Ramos said the bicyclist suffered significant injuries, including head trauma. He said investigators found no sign of a helmet at the scene and believe the bicyclist was not wearing one.

He said the motorist, an older woman, was shaken but was not injured.

Based on witnesses statements, it does not appear the motorist was at fault, Ramos said.
