Chicago Cyclist Survives Truck Accident

By admin on November 16, 2015

A Chicago woman initially reported dead following a collision with a pickup truck is actually resting in stable condition. As initially reported by CBS 2, the bicycle accident happened near the six-way intersection of Lincoln Ave., Fullerton Parkway, and Halstead St. in Lincoln Park.

The 38 year-old bicyclist was entering the intersection when a Ford F-650 turned right into her path. The victim was knocked to the ground. She was transported to the hospital with injuries to her head, back, and left side.

Investigators from the Major Accident Investigation Unit determined that the woman was in the truck driver’s blind spot when he made the right onto Halsted.

The truck driver was issued a citation at the time of the accident. Authorities initially reported the victim died. However, by the following afternoon they retracted the statement and reported she was in stable condition. In either case, she suffered a serious injury due to the truck driver’s actions.
