Tonight while riding south on Gilman Dr. (right about here), I saw traffic backed up due to police activity in the left traffic lane and center divider. When I passed the scene, I saw a dark-colored (maroon?) Prius(?) stopped in the traffic lane and, in front of it, a light-colored (white?) mountain bike on its side.

This was tonight (2005-11-04) at around 17:00.

There were plenty of police about, and I think I saw someone using a distance-measuring device, so I guess this wasn't just a bike that fell off of a rack.

It looks like someone went down; does anybody have more information about what happened?

Hmm. No intersection there. And it's south from all the construction.

(this is a few hundred feet from my commute route, where I'm headed right now)
