Cinderella Classic cyclist injured in Dublin crash

Woman hit while crossing Dublin Boulevard during Saturday's event

One of the participants of an East Bay bicycling event on Saturday was struck by a vehicle in Dublin and suffered serious injuries.

The collision occurred around 3 p.m. at Dublin Boulevard and Arnold Road during the Cinderella Classic, an annual bicycle ride for women and girls, Dublin police Lt. Nate Schmidt said.

A woman was traveling eastbound on Dublin Boulevard when a vehicle hit her, Schmidt said. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries considered serious but is expected to survive.

The bicyclist was crossing the street during a leg of the 65-mile Cinderella Classic, which takes riders — some in costumes — from Pleasanton to Livermore and Danville and then back again.

Schmidt said the collision was accidental and that the motorist involved was cooperative with investigators. Drugs or alcohol are not being considered as factors in the crash.
