The female bicyclist struck by a semi tractor trailer on Friday afternoon is fighting infection and is to undergo surgery to repair a shattered pelvis at Loyola University Medical Center, according to a reader of this blog who contacted me last night via email. The bicyclist, Terri Cenar, was struck at around 1:45 p.m. on November 4th and initially taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. No details have been reported regarding the cause of this incident. Prayers for her recovery have been requested.
Poking around online revealed Ms. Cenar to be an avid cyclist and frequent bike commuter. She is a current or former fitness instructor.
