Bicyclist Injured After Colliding with U-Haul Van

According to the Boston Globe, a 19-year-old bicyclist was injured after colliding with a U-Haul van last week. The bike accident occurred in Newton near Walnut Street and Lakewood Road last Tuesday morning around 9:51am.

The name of the accident victim was not released by police, but she was transported by ambulance to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital and treated for multiple injuries. She was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. There is no crosswalk in that area, so the bicyclist was not in a crosswalk.

The cause of the bike accident is still under investigation, and the 27-year-old driver of the U-Haul van has not been charged.
