It was a perilous holiday weekend for some drivers traveling the highways and byways of Los Alamos.
Saturday evening, a bicyclist collided with an SUV-type vehicle on Central Ave, near one of the entries to the parking lot of Smith’s Food and Drug.
According to police the only injuries suffered were to the bicyclist, described as a male in his 20s. He apparently suffered an injury to one of his knees and was conscious when he was transported to the Los Alamos Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.
Just how the accident occurred is not known at this time. Police said they are still investigating, and will have a detailed report later in the week as to what happened and who was at fault.
Then Sunday morning, a female operating a motorcycle, reportedly on N.M. 4 in the Jemez Mountains, went over the guardrail and had to be airlifted to an area hospital. At this time, it is not known what hospital or what condition the victim was in. The Los Alamos Monitor will have more details later in the week.
Later, it was reported a Dodge Durango was found crashed off the road and abandoned somewhere beyond the guard gates to the Los Alamos National Laboratory on N.M. 4.
Then, Sunday afternoon, a man was driving his Ford pickup truck eastbound on Diamond Drive when he reportedly went up on the sidewalk and over the guardrail into Walnut Canyon, between the Pueblo Complex and the gas station at the corner of Diamond Drive and Arkansas Avenue. The man reportedly was able to get out of his truck, but was taken to the Los Alamos Medical Center for evaluation and treatment.
The Los Alamos Monitor will have more details on these accidents later in the week.
