Borderstan has not found any updates today on the condition on the 20-year-old male cyclist who was seriously injured Thursday after being hit by a car at 11th and U Streets NW. According to numerous sources, the accident occurred at 10 am.
Dcist cites city sources who said the young man has life-threatening injuries; his identity has not been released. WJLA reported that the cyclist had died, but this was not picked up by other media outlets and has not been confirmed by officials.
Few details are available, but a cyclist and a car collided around 4 pm on Tuesday afternoon at 15th and T Streets NW. Northbound traffic on 15th was closed for a short while.
The DC Police Department tweeted the incident:

Dcist has an update on the status of the biker who was hit by a trailer truck on Tuesday at 11th and U Streets NW.
According to DCist, “Shawn Streiff, the cyclist who was hit by a truck while riding a Capital Bikeshare bike near 11th and U Streets NW, remains in the hospital after the Wednesday morning accident. He also faces three tickets in the wake of the crash, one for running a red light and another for not wearing a helmet.”
The DCist story includes a comprehensive picture of the tragedy with information about Streiff. The story also has information on how to make donations to help Streiff with his recovery.
We still do not have any Police report on this incident. But seems like a man riding a Capital BikeShare was hit by a truck at 11th and U Streets NW. The biker was taken to a hospital while police were still on site.
According to NBC Channel 4 on Tuesday, “The bicyclist, a 29-year-old Northwest man, is in stable condition, News4’s Pat Collins reported. He was charged with failure to yield right of way and a red light violation.”
