I am sad to report that two pedestrian deaths occurred within 12 hours of each other in San Jose.
It's common knowledge that cities and counties across the San Francisco Bay Area are struggling to make their budgets. It's also a fact, however, that millions of dollars are leaving city reserves each year because of legal payouts.
As an avid cyclist and as a parent residing in Mill Valley, CA, I'm particularly interested in learning the most dangerous intersections in my bicycle-friendly town. Mill Valley is very bicycle-oriented and I like to claim that Mill Valley is the birthplace of mountain biking.
As a fellow motorcycle enthusiast and Bay Area Motorcycle Accident Attorney, I cringe every time I read about a serious motorcycle accident with severe injuries. On Thursday, May 31, 2012, a motorcycle injury accident occured in San Jose about 6:00 p.m. when an SUV struck the motorcycle traveling southbound on I-280 near the Meridian Avenue off-ramp, causing serious personal injuries to the motorcyclist.
I learn too often about bus accidents, where serious injuries occur to pedestrians when hit. I recently learned that on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, a pedestrian was pinned underneath a shuttle bus and pinned underneath the bus for a long period of time. This bus pedestrian accident occurred in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood at around 2:18 p.m. at Eddy and Leavenworth Streets.
