description

Raised lip surrounding manhole. Experienced female cyclist hit unseen lip at approximately 25MPH and went over handlebar. 5 broken ribs,broken shoulder and collar bone. Torn ligaments in her shoulder. She's been in hospital since 7/13 surgery now, 7/18. You can see it on Google Maps street view. The lip is about 2", enough to throw you over handle bar if you don't see it. I saw it, she didn't! She came to a rest 60' past the manhole. UPDATE 10-11-13: report inadvertently skipped; just now reported to Lafayette and asked for an update to see if they were previously notified of the hazard and if it's been fixed.
