Bicyclist Injured After Being Struck by SUV
Section of Woolley Road closed Tuesday night.
A bicyclist was hit by an SUV on Woolley Road Tuesday at about 8:10 p.m., sending a 29-year-old Oswego man to the hospital.
The man was riding his bike westbound near Oswego Fire Protection District Station One on Woolley Road when he was clipped by a 65-year-old Oswego man driving a Chevrolet Suburban.
The bicyclist was flipped from his bike, but did not sustain life-threatening injuries, according to Rob Sherwood, Oswego police media relations officer. He was listed in good condition Wednesday morning at Rush-Copley Medical Center, said hospital spokeswoman Courtney Satlak.
No tickets were issued, and according to the police report the driver did not see the bicyclist until just before hitting him with the passenger side mirror of the Suburban. The report did not indicate how fast the SUV was traveling, but the speed limit in the area is 35 mph.
Woolley Road was closed in the area for less than an hour, Sherwood said.
