Ithaca Police Respond To Two Unrelated Bicycle Accidents

On 10/5/12, the Ithaca Police Department, along with the Ithaca Fire Department and Bangs Ambulance, responded to the 100 block of Stone Quarry Road for a report of a bicycle accident. Witnesses to the accident advised that the bicyclist, a 66 year old Town of Ithaca resident, had been northbound on Stone Quarry Road and lost control of his bicycle when he traversed the change in roadway grade which is created by the old railway crossing at the boundary line for the City of Ithaca. The bicyclist was airlifted to Robert Packer Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

A second bicycle accident that occurred in the City of Ithaca Friday has sent an area resident to the hospital by helicopter. This afternoon at around 4:05PM a 51 year old Newfield Resident was traveling down Giles St and approaching the intersection of Water Street when he lost control of his bicycle. The bicyclist suffered facial and other bodily injures. He was transported by helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital Sayre, PA where he is listed in serious condition.

The Ithaca Fire Department and Bangs Ambulance also responded to both accidents.
