A Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) bus hit a Boston University student earlier this month. Officials from the BU Police Department said this is the second incident involving a student and a cycling accident in two days.
An 18-year-old male student was cycling along Commonwealth Avenue outside of Boston University’s Fitness and Recreation Center when he was struck from behind by the MBTA bus on its front right side. The bus accident victim complained of back pain and was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
There are no bike lanes in that part of Commonwealth Avenue. The Boston Police Department plans to investigate the cycling accident along with the MBTA Transit Police.
