      Seems like a crass question when someone’s life is on the line, but yes, assuming the crash was caused by the cyclist’s negligence, the cyclist would probably be liable for the cost of repairs.

      Fortunately, most cyclists have better liability insurance than the average motorist, since liability for negligent cycling is generally covered at no extra cost by the personal liability coverage of home, condo, or renters insurance — even minimum-wage service workers commonly have $100,000 or better liability coverage for cycling, vs. state minimum $10,000 property damage coverage for car insurance.

      • It's her body

        Dope +woman+bike=dope.She put people in harms way and caused damage to property. She will be fined and will pay for the destruction of property. Carry on…but not on dope and not on any mode of transportation in your control.
