The victim was found by onlookers writhing and spitting up blood. Moreover, the authorities reported Wednesday that the woman, whose name was withheld, had a cerebral hemorrhage following the electric bike crash.

She was brought to a hospital, where she was treated for the brain bleed and put on life support.

What Caused the Incident?

Although the cyclist had been traveling in a designated bike lane with her electric bicycle, she was not wearing a helmet, which is why she suffered brain bleed injuries after the crash happened.

Moreover, the abandoned shopping cart was left in the bike lanes, which posed a safety hazard for cyclists.

The authorities are still investigating the incident that happened on Friars Road and Morena Boulevard that led to the woman’s head injury.
