UPDATE: VEHICLE VS. BICYCLIST
On November 5, 2019, at around 5:48 p.m., Brentwood officers responded to a vehicle vs. bicyclist collision at the intersection of Lone Tree Way and O’ Hara Ave. During the investigation, traffic was diverted for approximately 20 minutes.
Preliminary investigation revealed, the bicyclist (eight year old, Brentwood resident) was traveling southbound on O’Hara Ave at the intersection of Lone Tree Way. As the bicyclist crossed the intersection against a red signal, a Toyota Prius traveling approximately 30 MPH on Lone Tree Way struck the bicyclist knocking him off his bicycle.
The bicyclist, later determined to have suffered minor injuries, was transported to Oakland Children’s Hospital for pre-cautionary reasons and is expected to make a full recovery.
The driver of the Toyota (40 year old, Brentwood resident) remained on scene and fully cooperated with police during the investigation. Drugs or alcohol was not a factor.
Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the Brentwood Police Department at (925) 809-7911.
