Bicyclist Hit By Car, Flipped And Severely Injured On Dashcam Video

The video shows a bicyclist apparently slowly pedaling into the intersection of Halsted and Roosevelt when a car hits him, sending the man over the car's roof and landing several feet away.

Police say the incident happened at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday in the 700 block of West Roosevelt Road. The bicyclist, a 32-year-old man, ran a red light and was hit by a car, police said. The man was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

    Bicyclist Hit By Car, Flipped And Severely Injured On Dashcam Video
    CHICAGO - The potential dangers of riding a bike in the city are illustrated in a video of a bicyclist hit by a car and severely injured Tuesday in University Village. The horrific accident was captured on another driver's dashcam video.

  • I agree with West Loop Mongo. I rarely see bicyclists following the rules of the road. This is dangerous not only for them but also for the motorists who have to anticipate their every move.

    The City of Chicago has received millions of dollars in federal money, starting under Mayor Daley. Why would you blame cyclist, when they have been a cash cow for city officials for programs around the city, if they were successful or failed. Just blame motorists, and ignore the safety of pedestrians that have been been terrorized by the irresponsible cyclists throughout Chicago for over a decade.
