anyone hear more about it?
I hope the bicyclist is ok!
That looked horrible. It appears that the cyclist was clipped from the mirror of the vehicle that was speeding and not three feet away. The cyclist goes down backwards hitting his head and seems to be totally unconscious and makes no movement at all in the video. I also hope this cyclist survived and fully recovered from this crash.
Do we have an update on the condition of the cyclist?
Oh, my heart goes out to this poor woman's friends and her family. She was riding her bike doing what we all do and the video shows the truck simply clip her without appearing to be aware of her existence on the road. The Chainlink's Facebook page says she has died from this injury. I have often biked on Washington crossing Halsted just a block away from this location. . This makes me shiver. From the video it seems like she did nothing wrong other than be in the wrong place at the wrong time and was taken out by this driver.
unfortunately, this is a different crash (from a few days ago). Too many crashes. Too many cyclists being hurt, killed.
The woman that died this morning was struck this morning by a truck driver making a right turn. https://www.thechainlink.org/forum/topics/bicyclist-hit-by-truck-in...
Yup. Just realized that the posted clip was not from today's crash.
Actually this incident occurred on a Thursday night June 14, 2018 at about 9pm. A 46-year-old female cyclist was hit by a person driving a grey Mini Cooper in the vicinity of 1300 w. Cortland St. There was no recent update on her condition which was earlier listed as 'serious'.
Where did you find out the cyclist's age? I've been looking for updates but haven't seen any besides your comment.
