A cyclist was struck by a moving car at the intersection of Roosevelt and Halsted (in the University of Illinois Chicago area) at about 5:45pm CST on Tuesday July 18th, 2017.

The 32 year old male cyclist (heading south along Halsted) was hit at the intersection by a car travelling (west along Roosevelt) driven by a 22 year old female, resulting in a severe impact that sent the cyclist flying up into the air over her vehicle- partially landing along the sedan's rear, before crashing back down onto the street where he laid motionless indefinitely.

The female driver remained on the scene and was not cited by the Chicago Police.

While several witnesses were eventually interviewed by the police (who had arrived several minutes after the Chicago Fire truck), hopefully this video footage will help to clarify the sequence of events associated to this tragedy
