A male bicyclist was “doored” on Mass. Ave. Tuesday evening while riding between Capitol Square and Arlington Center.
At about 5:25 p.m., the bicyclist ran into the inside of the opened car door in the westbound lane, across from Mass. Ave.’s intersection with Elmhurst Road.
The male driver was cited for failure to use care.
In the collision, the bicyclist was propelled off of his bike and onto the street. He was treated for a small laceration to his right elbow on scene and refused transportation to the hospital.
