The driver was Menlo Park resident Erika Bailey, who is in her early 70s, Mr. Montiel said. "It does not appear that the vehicle was speeding," he said. A witness to the accident agreed with that statement, Woodside fire district Battalion Chief Kevin Butler told the Almanac. Several cyclists and pedestrians had gathered at the scene, Mr. Montiel said.
Mr. Arnout was found lying in the center of the road and was "barely conscious" as medics tended to him, Mr. Butler said. By the time he arrived at Stanford Hospital, Mr. Arnout had recovered to the point that he was able to communicate with medical personnel, Mr. Butler said, adding that he did not have further information on his medical condition.
The CHP closed Alpine Road for about an hour in both directions, Mr. Montiel said.
Ms. Bailey's vehicle sustained damage to the right side of the windshield, the passenger side mirror, and the right front of the vehicle. The bike could not be ridden, but was not heavily damaged, Mr. Butler said.
