AS many of you know, the Seattle EV Association has been planning on
Hosting the Teams and Crew of the ZERO RACE on their around the world
EV Trip.

They have HIT a snag. A Bicycle vs Electric Car Accident in Vancouver
BC just hours ago.

http://tinyurl.com/2afeymd
and
http://tinyurl.com/265gyd2

I have got word, that the remaining two teams and support people are
PROCEEDING to Seattle, but their arrival will be quite LATE.

The scheduled Press Conference in front of the Seattle International
Auto Show tomorrow morning at 11 AM is still on schedule as planned.

Thanks to my counterpart Don Chandler in Vancouver for helping out and
passing the (not so good ) news to the rest of us.

Very unfortunate, I hope the cyclist and EV driver are both Ok.

In viewing the video and pictures it is apparent the two wheel electric
vehicle hit the bicycle and rider broadside, [The bicycle frame is bent in
the center.] Thus, it would appear the EV hit a Biker who was crossing
traffic flow [without regard to traffic] on a lightly traveled residential
street. He would probably have stopped and waited for a delivery van, but
the tiny EV he may have simply not seen. Please consider this is only
conjecture, I do not claim accuracy. As the text below the video stated the
bike rider was taken to the hospital, we can all hope for the best. (Please
do not turn this into an argument for EV noise makers.)
Regards,
Dennis Miles

I don't know anything about who was at fault, but that EV is much
larger than most motorcycles out there. And it's taller than many
cars. IF the bicyclist was not paying attention, this could have
happened with any number of non-EVs. I hope the press clears it up so
it doesn't become fuel for the anti-EV community. We all know that EVs
are not dangerous due to their quiet nature, so let's make sure the
public knows too.
