A 24-year-old cyclist was struck by a turning car but had minimal injuries at the intersection of Home Ave. and Roosevelt Road in the early morning of April 5. Police said the Oak Park bicyclist was travelling eastbound on Roosevelt Road on the sidewalk and entered the crosswalk around 6:45 a.m. A 1999 Pontiac Bonneville travelling south on Home Ave. struck the cyclist who was knocked to the ground.

"At first he refused medical attention, but then he said his knee hurt and an ambulance was called," said Oak Park Detective Sgt. Michael Richardson.

The cyclist was taken to Rush-Oak Park Hospital and treated. The driver of the Bonneville was not charged.
