The cyclist whose dooring was captured on tape by WUSA9 has a broken hip and a broken wrist.
t turned out the crash so badly damaged Kaldany's hip that the surgeons had to cut it out and replace it. Police cited the van driver for violating the D.C. law designed to prevent this kind of crash.
The driver, if you can believe it, continues to insist that the video tape is lying.
The driver continues to claim Kaldany ran into his mirror, although it's clear from the tape that he opened his door right into him.
If WUSA9's data is correct, doorings are more common than I thought.
The numbers are staggering. There were about 850 bike versus car crashes in D.C. in 2014. As many as 20 percent of them were people opening a door right into a bike's path.
I only know of one cyclist death in the DC area that was the result of a dooring, and that was many years ago.
