A bicyclist in his 50s was seriously injured yesterday in Skokie when he was struck by a 63 year old driver, according to Evanston Now. Video from ABC 7 Chicago shows the bike laying in the street in the 700 block of Main Street, the red carbon fiber frame sliced in half. As of yesterday evening the bicyclist was in serious condition in St. Francis Hospital with a head injury.
The collision with the bicyclist reportedly came at the end of a three mile rampage in which the female driver struck several other motor vehicles and a woman on a motor scooter. Witnesses apparently describe the woman as muttering to police that she did nothing wrong. Drugs and alcohol were reportedly not found in her system. No word as to whether she was experiencing a mental or physical calamity of some sort at the time of the crash.
