Donald Sutherland When the Metal Met the Pedal

Donald Sutherland made the case yesterday that bicycles and cars don't co-exist well, especially in the People's Republic of Santa Monica.

Sutherland collided with a bicyclist in the seaside city, at around 2:45 PM.  The bicyclist suffered some sort of injury -- paramedics wrapped her arm after arriving on scene.

It's unclear who caused the crash.  One thing cops are sure of -- alcohol was not a factor.
