Inattentive Elderly Driver Injures Bicyclist On Sheridan Road

A fractured arm and broken teeth was the price paid by an Evanston bicyclist for one driver's inattention on Sheridan Road last week.  On November 1st a 55 year old cyclist riding along the right side of Sheridan Road in Wilmette was struck by a left turning elderly driver who was not paying attention.  The incident occurred at the uncontrolled intersection of Sheridan and Forest Avenue at around 8:45 a.m.  The experienced male cyclist, out for a training ride on his road bike, was traveling north when the 81 year old driver of a 2003 BMW turned left directly into his path.  The cyclist grabbed his brakes and tried to swerve but had little time to react and crashed into the side of the car.  The impact threw him off the bike and onto the tarmac where his forearm fractured and four front teeth shattered.  His 2011 Cervelo RS was also badly damaged.

The man was taken from the scene via ambulance to Evanston Hospital where his serious injuries were assessed and treated.  He is expected to require surgery to mend his badly fractured forearm.  He is also expected to have extensive dental work over a period of many months to fix and replace his teeth.

My law firm has been retained to represent the bicyclist.
