A 21-year-old female cyclist suffered a broken leg after she collided with a car at the intersection of Sheridan Road and Chicago Avenue on Wednesday night, police said.

The incident occurred at about 10:50 p.m., Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The woman, a Communication senior at Northwestern, was crossing the intersection against the light at the time of the accident, University spokesman Al Cubbage said.

Part of Sheridan Road near The Arch was blocked off following the accident. The driver was not cited, Parrott said.

“The vehicle had the right of way,” he said. “The bike went in the path of the car.”

The female cyclist was treated at Evanston Hospital, Parrott said.
