Edited to add:
The Statesman article first grabbed my attention because the incident occurred about 1/2 mile from our home. Interesting to note that neither article says where the car was parked on S 1st St. One article says collapsed and the other says collided. Statesman described as life threatening injuries from a collapse into car. CBS just says transported to S Austin hospital after colliding. Not at all clear on what really happened. A bit typical with mainstream media, particularly around bicycle collisions and rider injuries sustained.
