Lodi City Attorney Steve Schwabauer was injured in a bicycle
accident Sunday while participating in a fundraiser ride.
Paramedics received a call at 12:19 p.m. Sunday to respond to a
bicycle accident at Armstrong and Davis roads, said David Durand,
spokesperson for AMR.
Schwabauer told paramedic supervisor Steve Riley that he was in
a sprint to the finish line when the chain on his bike got lodged,
causing him to lose his balance and fall, Durand said. Schwabauer
grazed another rider, but the other rider did not suffer any
significant injuries, Durand said.
