Speeding Cyclist Blows Red Light and Nearly Kills 60-Year-Old Woman

UPDATE: The SF Bike Coalition responds to last week's accident. Read after the jump.

Original Story 1:30 p.m., Friday, July 15: This morning traffic was backed up on the Embarcadero after a cyclist ran a red light, hitting a pedestrian. According to police, the victim, a 60-year-old woman, remains in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

So often cyclists and pedestrians lament San Francisco drivers' carelessness behind the wheel. However, it's not uncommon to see cyclists using bad etiquette, or even breaking the law, like blowing through a stop sign.

So it begs the question: How often do police cite cyclists for running a red light or blowing a stop sign?
