Matt Barkley Hits Bicyclist With His Car

USC quarterback and Heisman favorite Matt Barkley avoided a potentially disastrous situation after gently crashing into a man on a bike over the weekend.

TMZ is reporting that Barkley was leaving a Mobile gas station near campus when he collided with the gentleman.

We’re told the rider was knocked off the bike … and Matt immediately stopped the car to check on the man.

Sources say one of the bike pedals was lodged in the bumper of Matt’s ride … but the two men were able to pry the part from the car.

After a quick conversation, we’re told both men decided it wasn’t necessary to call police … and went their separate ways. We’re told the biker did not appear to suffer any serious injuries.

We called both USC and Barkley’s family about the story — so far, no comment from either.

The Senior Barkley averted a situation that could have been a whole lot worse and a media nightmare for the preseason number 1 Trojans.

I’m just glad no one was hurt, and everything is good in the land of Troy.

Barkley might want to stay from behind the wheel until at least February though.

  1. Its no fun. Getting hit, being I used to commute to and from work and have been hit. Sounds very minor besides. A hole in the bumper. Hopefully Barkley is more alert behind the wheel.
