Cyclist Hit from Behind Near Dowagiac, MI

Posted by Henry Scott on October 12, 2009

According to a brief article published in the South Bend Tribune, a cyclist was hit from behind Sunday afternoon near Dowagiac, MI (Google Map). Apparently the cyclist, Kiefer Hall, was following traffic laws by riding with traffic. Hopefully this unfortunate accident won’t reinforce the tendency of some cyclists to ride against traffic, which is known to be far more dangerous. Most importantly, however, here’s hoping that Mr. Hall’s injuries are relatively minor, and that he’ll recover quickly!

  1. I am so sorry to hear about this collision. My hope is that Kiefer is getting everything he needs and he will make speedy recovery.

    I am asking anyone who is familiar with the details of the collision to go to http://www.RoadGuardian.com to mark and report the incident.

    Thank you,

    Kiefer. Thanks for letting us know how you’re doing. Can you tell us a bit about the accident? The news article was not very informative.
