Just noticed a strange story over on KPTV.com.
On January 17th, a man was knocked off his bicycle while riding on 231st Avenue near Cornell Road (in Hillsboro) at about 2:30 pm. The police investigators say there’s “no evidence of a car”. Read more (emphasis mine):
Police said they aren’t sure what knocked a man off his bicycle, breaking his collar bone and giving him a concussion a few weeks ago.
The victim said he was riding on 231st Avenue near Cornell Road (map) at about 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 and was passing a parked commercial truck when he suddenly found himself under the trailer, police said.
The biker told investigators that he wasn’t sure whether something hit him but it felt like something pushed him under the truck.
The victim said that he was hit in the head with a blunt object. Officers said there was no evidence of a car, but it is possible that a car hit the man as he was riding around the truck.”
