By From page A3 | January 28, 2014

A collision between two bicyclists sent an El Macero man to the hospital Friday morning, the California Highway Patrol reported Monday.

Wilfred C. Uecker, 69, was among a group of cyclists riding in a tight group on eastbound Russell Boulevard near County Road 96 when the crash occurred shortly after 11:30 a.m. Another bicyclist, 61-year-old John W. Swann of Davis, hit a pothole and clipped Uecker’s rear tire, resulting in Uecker losing control and being thrown from his bike, CHP Officer Cindy Leal said.

Uecker, who complained of pain to his head, was transported to the UC Davis Medical Center for treatment, Leal said.
