From today’s BU Today: Student Cyclist Struck by Car, Hospitalized with head injury after Comm Ave accident.
An 18-year-old BU student was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital with a head injury early Wednesday evening after being struck by a car while riding her bike on Comm Ave at Buick Street. Witnesses said the victim was in the bike lane when she was hit; she was thrown onto the hood of the car, and her head smashed the windshield.
You have the use of just one head in this life. A helmet wouldn’t have prevented the accident but likely would have reduced the severity of the victim’s injuries.
