Bicyclist's leg severed in accident in Carnegie

Tuesday, July 2, 2013, 8:45 p.m.
 

A bicyclist's leg was severed on Tuesday when he rode into an oncoming car in Carnegie, police said.

Witnesses told police the man, in his 50s, weaved in and out of traffic on Mansfield Boulevard around 9:30 a.m. and cars slowed to go around him, Carnegie police Chief Jeffrey Kennedy said.

He then rode onto the sidewalk before darting into oncoming traffic, police said.

“The car hit him right on,” severing his left leg, Kennedy said.

The bicyclist, whose name police withheld, was in stable condition at Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side.

The driver of the car was not injured. Kennedy said he does not think police will charge the driver.
