Bicyclist Struck by CTA Brown Line

NBC 5 Chicago is reporting that a bicyclist was injured in a bicycle accident after being struck by a CTA Brown Line train.  The bicycle accident occurred during night time hours at the Kedzie Brown Line Station in Albany Park.  Service on the the Brown Line was temporarily halted and the injured bicyclist was transported to Swedish Covenant Hospital.

Injuries from any kind of bicycle accident can be quite significant.  No matter how serious you believe an injury to be at first, you should always seek medical advice and contact the police. Medical cost for treatment can be extremely expensive.  Notifying the police is crucial in helping to make the responsible party account for their actions.  Information the police obtain from an injured party can help to ensure that the injured party receives fair compensation for medical treatment and the pain and suffering they had to endure.
