In less than 48 hours San Clemente saw two bicyclists struck by vehicles and hospitalized.
A vehicle struck a bicyclist in the 200 block of El Camino Real at 1:22 p.m. Thursday said Kris Concepcion, spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority.
Paramedics took the bicyclist, a 29-year-old to Mission Hospital for a possible dislocated shoulder, said Concepcion
On Wednesday, another vehicle struck a cyclist on Pacific Coast Highway near the Camino Capistrano intersection, shutting down traffic on the PCH and Camino Capistrano up to Avenida Vaquero, according to the Orange County Sheriff's dispatch records.
That rider was also taken to the hospital. Local bicycle activists have cited the number of bicycle and pedestrian accidents in their calls for better integration of non-motorized vehicle traffic in the street system in San Clemente.
