I often end up reporting in this column about bicycle accidents, but what I am writing about today was no bicycle accident! This was an attack on bicycle riders! As an avid bicyclist myself and a San Francisco bike injury lawyer, I am outraged by the story that developed late Wednesday night in the Mission and Potrero Districts. Three San Francisco cyclists wereapparently targeted by a driver in some sort of road rage episode. According to witnesses, the driver intentionally hit four bicyclists as they rode on the public street. Three bicyclists suffered serious personal injuries including broken bones,…
