Bicyclist seriously hurt when struck by Ashland driver

A 27-year-old bicyclist who suffered significant head injures when he was struck by a car Friday night on Siskiyou Boulevard has been released from the intensive care unit at Providence Medford Medical Center, police said.

Jeffrey Terr of Las Vegas, N.M., was treated for a fractured skull and intracranial bleeding, said Sgt. Bob Smith with the Ashland Police Department. A hospital spokesperson said Tuesday that Terr was no longer a patient.

Terr was riding his bike near the intersection of Siskiyou Boulevard and Normal Avenue at 10:34 p.m. when he was struck by a Honda Accord driven by Ashland resident Luke William Lindquist, 20. (See correction note below.)

The Honda had been traveling southeast on Siskiyou Boulevard, according to the report. As the car turned northbound onto Normal Avenue, it struck Terr, Smith said. Terr was thrown onto the windshield of the car and then onto the ground where he suffered head injuries, Smith said.

Terr appeared to have had proper illumination on his bike, Smith said. The police report did not indicate whether Terr was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, he said.

The crash is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ashland Police Department at 541-482-5211.

Contact staff writer Hannah Guzik at 541-482-3456 ext. 226 or hguzik@dailytidings.com.

Correction: This name has been corrected. Police originally identified a witness to the accident as the Honda's driver.
