Witnesses Wanted: Taxi-Bicycle Collision


Aaron Weis either hit or was hit by a taxi on either Aug 18th or 19th and needs your help:
ATTENTION
LOOKING FOR WITNESSES OF A TAXI-BICYCLE COLLISION THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE EVENING ON WEDNESDAY, AUG 18TH ON 24TH ST BETWEEN CASTRO AND DIAMOND

I was riding my bicycle down 24th St and was hit by a taxi around 8:15pm this past Wednesday, Aug 19th. There were numerous witnesses and at least one woman who was gathering contact information from witnesses. The taxi passenger also lived nearby. I was loaded into an ambulance and was unable to obtain this information. If you were a witness or the passenger and would be willing to provide your contact information and observation, it would be hugely appreciated.
See image for contact info.

Thanks for posting this. I am the Aaron Weis that was hit. I have received a couple people's contact information. If you gave your statement to the police, I would still appreciate you contacting me. I am currently awaiting the official police report, and as such am not sure what is on it. I am assuming that most info is on the police report, but If I end up needing additional information or witness statements, the more witnesses I have the better. As stated above, send any info to aaronweis at gmail dot com.

Thanks again for posting this and to those that have contacted me!

Aaron, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. I wasn't there, but I understand the challenges of witnesses needed v. who's on the report, as my car was badly hit while parked a few years ago. Your approach is best, and I'm posting this to encourage everyone to share their info with you, even if they also shared it with the police.

Please post back and let us know how things go!
