A man riding his bike was hit by a van and dragged more than 130 feet earlier this morning on South Pearl Street. The man is currently recovering at Albany Medical Center.

The man driving the van was in his 80’s. He received a ticket.

What happened here? Is the senior citizen’s site starting to fail him? Maybe it was a legitimate accident. Either way, it’s an issue that is brought up often – should elderly people be allowed to drive? I’m not saying all old people suck at driving, but maybe we should have to re-take the road test when we hit a certain age?

What do you think?
