An Elon University freshman riding her bike to class, turned to enter a crosswalk on campus and WHAM! - she was struck and knocked off her bike by an oncoming car the victim said didn't even slow down.
"I thought he was stopping and I went ahead into the crosswalk, and he kept going and he just hit me," the student told Elon Local News. She ended up with a gash above her right eyebrow, a mid-range concussion and lifelong concerns about riding her bike in a crosswalk, no matter how clearly marked. "Don't assume that people see you," she was quoted as saying. "Always be careful. You'll be glad that you stopped."
The driver of the car was cited with entering a crosswalk or hitting a pedestrian at the crosswalk.
