An NU student was struck by a car while riding a bicycle down Sheridan Road on Thursday, police said.

A police officer was on vehicular patrol when he came across the aftermath of a traffic accident outside of Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson St., around 4:45 p.m. Thursday. The officer checked on the parties involved to see if anyone was injured, McAleer said. He then called the Evanston Police Department and the fire department for assistance.

The student sustained no serious injuries and signed a release because he refused transport to Evanston Hospital. McAleer said reports did not indicate whether the driver of the vehicle was affiliated with NU.
