BELFAST, Maine — A woman riding a bicycle on High Street was injured Wednesday afternoon when she collided with a vehicle.
Tiffany Nemec, whose age and hometown were not immediately available, complained of head and knee pain after the accident, according to Officer Eric Kelley of the Belfast Police Department.
Kelley said that witnesses told him that driver Linda Stout, 61, of Freedom had been turning left into the Belfast Co-op when the cyclist “ran into her.” Bystanders and emergency responders went to aid Nemec, who landed on the pavement next to Stout’s minivan.
One woman who witnessed the aftermath of the accident said that the city’s downtown can be congested and busy in the summer tourist season.
“You’ve got so many people from so many places,” Marjorie Lewis of Swanville said. “There’s so much going on and people are trying to get from point A to point B. It can be frightening.”
