On Friday, July 11, at about 5:52 p.m., a car accident occurred on Interstate 71 in Ohio near the US 36/37 exit.

An alarming trend is happening in Cleveland, Ohio, between motorists and bicyclists. A bike advocacy group called Bike Cleveland has reported that there were eight car versus bicycle collisions in June.

This recent spate of injuries comes on the heels of a fatal May accident wherein a 36-year-old mother of five kids perished.
