Categories: Biohazard Cleanup

When tragedies occur involving blood and other bodily fluids, crime scene cleaners are called in to clean up the scene so public streets are free of all biohazards and safe for the wider public.

Just a few short days ago, one such tragedy needing biohazard cleanup occurred in Show Low, Arizona, a small town about a three-hour drive Northeast of Phoenix. With hundreds of people there to participate in the bike race, “Bike the Bluff,” the race had just started when cyclists saw a black Ford pickup turning across three lanes of traffic and accelerating toward them. Hitting the cyclists at full speed, seven people were left severely injured including broken ribs, a crushed ankle, broken neck bones, and a punctured lung, among other injuries.

Witnesses who saw the accident occur say bicycles and cyclists went flying and the truck only stopped when the driver ran into a light pole. Fellow racers crowded around the truck, demanding the driver get out but then watched in horror as the truck backed up, turned around, and headed back toward the cyclists but this time, drove past them down the street. Police immediately chased the driver down and cornered him behind the Ace Hardware store where he resisted arrest. The police then shot the suspect and medics took him to a local hospital. He has yet to be formally charged.

Back at the scene, bicycle parts, helmets, and blood littered the area throughout the scene. One witness racing behind the group that was hit recalled the extremely gory scene and said they will never forget what they saw and that no one should ever have to see something like it.
