The person mentioned in the “Goat King” blog was not struck by a car but actually fell off of her bike around 11pm.
Active Trans staff did some research regarding the cyclist mentioned in this blog. According to the 17th Police District, the only traffic accident reported in that area on July 27, 2010, occurred at 11pm at 3318 W. Lawrence. There was a cyclist who had fallen off of her bike and was taken to the hospital where she was treated for a bump to the head. Initial reports into 911 speculated that a vehicle was involved, but the statement that the cyclist gave the police negated that fact. No fatalities or other bicycle related incidents occurred in that area on that date.
I'm not sure what Goatking was thinking in speculating about what had happened. What is even more disturbing is that a main stream media source, Chicago Redeye/Chicago Now, allowed this falsity to be published on its website.
