Passersby help officer rescue bicyclist from under car

EVERETT — When a bicyclist got hurt in Everett on Wednesday night, police and passers-by pitched in to help.

It happened about 7:30 p.m. on Broadway.

Witnesses told detectives that the bicyclist was eastbound from Lombard Avenue on 34th Street when he tried to stop on a down slope.

“He ended up crashing and rolling into traffic,” said officer Aaron Snell, a spokesman for the Everett Police Department.

The bicyclist, a 35-year-old man, then was struck by a Honda Accord that was southbound on Broadway. He became trapped under the front wheels.

An Everett police officer was in the area, and a passer-by had a car jack on hand, Snell said. The officer and the others worked together to use the jack to get the car off the man. An Accord can weigh more than 3,000 pounds.

Everett firefighters had the man on board headed to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett within 12 minutes of the 911 call, Fire Marshal Eric Hicks said.

The man suffered serious injuries but is expected to survive. No update on his condition was available Friday.

The Honda driver, a 36-year-old man, stayed at the scene and cooperated with detectives, Snell said.

“At this point in the investigation, it doesn’t appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision,” Snell said.

The officer who helped the man, Jared Snyder, recently celebrated two years with the department, Snell said.
