TBS Today, March 18

Several smaller stories for you today.

First, we had the news about a cyclist collision on San Pablo Avenue. We quickly updated the story with on-the-scene reports from one of our readers. Don't miss the updated story below.

We also wrote about three robberies within just 15 minutes this afternoon, perhaps a Berkeley record. (Although certainly not one to be proud of.)

Then there was the theft of a city vehicle on Saturday night that had multiple residents calling police to report erratic driving all over Telegraph and South Berkeley. We went to the scene to learn more.

Let's hope that's all the excitement for today.

By the way, if you'd like to know when we publish a story, and you're on Twitter, make sure to tap the bell icon on the TBS Twitter feed so you get a push alert when we have news to share.
