A BICYCLIST injured in an accident yesterday morning on Martin Luther King Drive got some help from a good Samaritan - Mayor Nutter.
The accident happened about 9 a.m. near Sweetbriar Drive. Police said the 63-year-old man was biking in a crosswalk when he was struck by a Ford Focus, causing him to get hit by a second vehicle.
Nutter's special assistant, Lauren Walker, drove past the accident and called to alert the mayor, who takes the route to work. When Nutter arrived on the scene, he said, the cyclist was lying in the road, bleeding. The mayor got out of his SUV and called 9-1-1, and he and his security officers stopped traffic and tended to the man until medics arrived.
