USC Star Matt Barkley

Heisman Frontrunner

in Car vs. Bicycle Crash

8/28/2012 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_matt_barkley_crash_scene_launchUSC quarterback Matt Barkley -- considered the best college quarterback in the country -- crashed into a man on a bicycle on Saturday night ... and TMZ has the pics.

A witness at the scene tells TMZ ... Matt was driving his Ford Escape out of a Mobil station near the USC campus Saturday night around 8:20 PM ... when he collided with a bicyclist.

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.

Gloria Allred? Shawn Chapman Holley? Suge Knight? This problem can be taken care of in a number of ways.

Matt thought it was Andrew Luck on the bike. Luck has been compared to Matt in case you didn't know who he was.

USC's in a very ghetto area. It's just smart to not tstop for anybody unless you want to get robbed.

Born in LA. PEACE.

If the pictures accurately portrays the direction the bike was traveling, the biker is 100% at fault. Without question. Barkley should make that loser pay to fix his bumper.

Something is fishy.....the bike dude could be cashing in but i bet he is an illegal and hence the reason for the "no need to call the cops".....LA is sooo third world.
