A Chicago resident was hit by a car on Friday night while riding a bicycle past a White Sox parking lot. The accident happened on West 33rd Street just before the Sox game started. The bicyclist was eastbound in a bike lane when a driver did not see the bike when turning right into a fan parking lot.
The bike rider sustained right shoulder, clavicle and other injuries, and was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital for treatment. The hospital referred him to an orthopaedic physician for follow up treatment.
The Chicago Police Department investigated the accident and ticketed the driver with failing to yield the right-of-way. A court date has been set for June at the Daley Center.
The injured Chicago bicyclist has entered into an agreement with Abels & Annes to pursue a civil claim against the at fault driver.
