Menlo Park briefs: Bicyclist severely injured in collision

By Sandy Brundage

Menlo Park police investigated a collision that left a bicyclist with life-threatening injuries on Nov. 18 during the morning commute.

The crash, which occurred around 8:23 a.m. at Bayfront Expressway and Marsh Road, left the westbound traffic lanes closed for about six hours as investigators finished gathering information.

The driver, a 33-year-old woman who lives in Union City, remained at the scene and did not appear to be under the influence of any drugs, police said.

The 33-year-old male bicyclist, a Menlo Park resident, was taken to Stanford Hospital. Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said he remained in critical condition and underwent surgery.

No fault has been assigned yet, Ms. Acker said, and further details were not available by the Almanac's press deadline. Police ask that anyone with information about the accident call investigators at 330-6300.

New city clerk

The new city clerk looks a lot like the interim city clerk in Menlo Park, and in fact, the two are one and the same. The city announced on Nov. 13 that Pam Aguilar has been promoted to the permanent post.

She stepped in as interim clerk following the departure of Margaret Roberts, who left at the end of May to take a position with the city of Hercules.

Ms. Aguilar has served as deputy city clerk for Menlo Park since 2009. Prior to that she held the position in Belmont for about two years and worked as deputy clerk for the First District Court of Appeals.

She received a bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley and completed a master's degree in public administration at California State University, East Bay.

She says she's looking forward to implementing more technology to streamline city clerk processes as well as ensuring public records are organized and accessible.
