A U student struck a bicyclist with her vehicle at the intersection of 300 South and University Street on Friday. The bicyclist was taken from the scene by ambulance, and the extent of injuries is not known.

University of Utah Police Department Officer Jordan Winegar, who was investigating the scene, reported that three eyewitnesses saw the student driving a silver Honda Civic northbound on University Street. The driver failed to yield while turning left onto 300 South and struck the bicyclist, who was traveling southbound on University Street.

Campus police Officer Lynn Rohland, who was directing traffic, reported that from his point of view, the scene appeared to be only a minor accident and that everyone involved was going to be fine.

The name of the victim has not been released. Winegar ticketed the driver of the Civic for failing to yield.
