A biker versus vehicle crash that happened Sunday night on the corner of Academy and Dublin has one person in the hospital in critical and unstable condition.
The incident serves as a reminder of safety precautions needed to be taken while sharing the road.
"You just have to watch out for bikers on the road because they've got to ride somewhere and you don't want to hit anybody and have an accident like the one that just happened," said local motorist Alex Rosas
Sharing the road just takes a little patience to ensure accidents like this don't happen again.
"Things happen so fast," said Lieutenant Howard Black with the Colorado Springs Police Department "you're dealing with multiple lanes and multiple vehicles so you have to pay attention and maintain focus."
The officer involved in the accident was driving north bound on Academy when the accident happened. The bicyclist ran a red light before hitting the car.
