Cyclist struck by pickup truck at Stinson Airport

06 Dec 2020

On 15 Oct 2020, Jim Entzenberger was T-boned while riding his bike by a driver in a pickup truck exceeding 60 mph (100 kph) while swerving recklessly on the highly-biked Mission Road. He was on the crosswalk that connected Stinson Airport's terminal and parking lot that has a trailhead connection to the Mission Reach trails. He landed on the hood and was carried about 100 feet (30 m) before flying off the hood. The driver fled the scene and abandoned the truck where it was discovered later with deployed airbags.

Entzenberger sustained a spinal fracture, broken sacrum, broken collarbone, three broken ribs, road rash all over his body, and other lacerations, according to a report on the GoFundMe.com website. He was taken to BAMC ICU and will encounter a long recovery that will involve rehab.

This becomes another incident in October where a cyclist was hit by a hit-and-run, speeding pickup truck. On 5 Oct 2020, a speeding truck took the life of a father of four (see related article: Father of four loses his life in a bike crash with a pickup truck).
