A Rochester woman was injured earlier this month after she was struck by a city police cruiser while riding her bicycle. Channel 10 News reports that the crash occurred on Monday, Dec. 10, at around 9 p.m., near the corner of Dewey and Lyell Avenues.

Witnesses indicate the woman was riding her bicycle along a sidewalk along the dim street. When she attempted to get back on the main road, an officer with the Rochester Police Department failed to see the woman and struck her bicycle’s rear tire. The impact of the Rochester Bicycle Accident caused the woman to be thrown from the bike, and she sustained major injuries upon impact with the asphalt.

Rescue crews were called to the scene and the victim was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

Statistics from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles show that more than 5,800 bicyclists were injured and another 57 were killed as the result of motor vehicle collisions last year. With ridership statewide seeing an increase, experts expect that the number of injuries and fatalities may rise.
