Blue Ridge Outdoors has Video and Interview with Biker Hit by SUV Driver

Tom Tedesco a Virginia Commonwealth University student and a Trip Leader for the Outdoor Adventure Program was heading home when things suddenly went bad.




An SUV ran a red light resulting in bicyclist Tom Tedesco being flipped end over end. The original story ran on December 28th.

Blue Ridge Outdoors has the video and a full interview with the victim.

BRO: Do you regret your speed? Do you feel at fault? 

TEDESCO: I don’t regret anything I did in this situation and I believe I was 0% at fault for what happened. I was obeying all traffic laws, paying attention, biking below the speed limit, wearing my helmet and traveling through a solid green light, while the driver of the SUV was clearly not paying attention, blew a red light, and did not react in time upon seeing me to avoid this accident.
