A fire truck, ambulance and several K-State police officers were called to the corner of Petticoat Lane and Manhattan Avenue on Friday afternoon.
A vehicle-bicycle accident occurred at about 3:45 p.m. when a car heading north on Manhattan Avenue misjudged the speed of an oncoming bicycle. The vehicle turned onto Petticoat Lane and struck the bicyclist.
Tom Fletcher, senior in criminology, was walking along Manhattan Avenue when he heard the collision and reported the accident.
“There was definitely a sound,” Fletcher said. “I knew something happened.”
Fletcher said he then walked around the corner to Ratone Street where he knew there was a police officer.
A K-State Police officer on the scene said that the injuries were not life threatening, but was unsure of exactly how severe the student’s injuries might be.
No further details were available.
