Police: Woman, 59, treated for fall from bicycle along Route 910 in Indiana Township


Allegheny County Police are investigating an incident in which a woman fell while riding a bike early Thursday morning in Indiana Township.

The incident was reported at 7 a.m. along Route 910 about 200 yards from the intersection with Blue Run Road.

County police said Indiana Township police and paramedics were called to the scene in response to 911 calls about an unresponsive female bicyclist on the ground.

When they arrived, they found a 59-year-old woman who was unresponsive, but breathing.

She was taken to a local hospital where she was listed in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers from the Allegheny County Police collision reconstruction unit also were called to the scene. Officials said they aren’t sure how the woman fell, but said there is no evidence to suggest she was struck by a passing car.

“It is possible that with the low visibility caused by the fog and limited light the cyclist hit the rumble strip and was thrown from the bike,” county police said in a news release.

The investigation is ongoing.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
