Spotted: Bixi Bikes Bashed by Car

20110509bixicrash.jpg
SPOTTED BY: Andrea Toole.
WHERE: On Bay Street, across from City Hall.
WHEN: This afternoon.
WHAT: At 3:06 p.m, Toole tweeted: “Male driver jumped curb, ran over @bixitoronto bike row on Bay St. across from City Hall,” and included links to two photos of the crash’s aftermath (see more photos here). A few minutes later, she added “…Tow truck, police, Court Services & onlookers on scene. Lexus driver still in car. Witnesses being questioned.” Though medics were on scene half an hour after the crash, it appeared to Toole that no one was injured in the incident.
Hat tip to Andrew Louis.

    And the War on Bikes reaches new extremes.

    Not a SUV, so not one of the Ford brothers.

    Sadly, this happens so routinely it isn't news.

    Glad the driver didn't mangle or kill anyone.

    Wow – this didn't take long. I thought it would happen on one of the streets where they're in the curb lane first.

    Funny you mention it; I was just about to speculate that perhaps it was another DUI for our dear mayor.

    My heart bleeds for Bixi, but at the end of the day it was their own fault.

    What moron tries to jump a row of bikes in a Lexus, everyone knows you need at least a Gravedigger

    Would've been even funnier if the car was a Ford.
