A bicycle safety instructor escaped with minor injuries after being struck by a car while riding his bike in the bicycle-friendly city of Ogden. Josh Jones says he saw a car waiting at a stop sign at an intersection on Friday, which was National Bike to Work Day, but the driver apparently did not see him. He told KUTV-TV that the motorist proceeded through the stop sign and struck him, then was cited for failure to yield the right of way. Jones, who suffered scrapes on his arms and legs, says the accident is a reminder that motorists need to slow down an pay attention. Jones, who is one of Ogden’s chief bicycle advocates, commutes by bike to and from work at the municipal building.
