According to witnesses at the scene, the cyclist rode through a stop sign and the van, which was traveling northbound on 33rd Street, was unable to stop before colliding with her.
“People riding bicycles in the city need to respect traffic signs,” MPD Officer N.A. Cook, who took witnesses’ statements at the scene, said. “The same accident at the same intersection happened about a week ago.”
Cook later identified the cyclist as a college student.
The woman, who was wearing a helmet, told EMS responders that she did not remember the accident. Although one responder told Vox that she “should be okay,” the woman was nonetheless transported to a nearby hospital.
