A cyclist was hospitalized after colliding with a pedestrian on campus at approximately 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, said UT Police Department Sergeant Gary Peoples.

The collision occurred on 21st Street between Gregory Gym and Jester Dormitory east of the intersection of 21st and Speedway. Peoples said the fire department, emergency medical services and the police responded to the scene. He said both the pedestrian and the cyclist were injured, although the pedestrian refused medical attention. The cyclist was transported to the hospital, where she remained as of yesterday afternoon.

“There were no life threatening injuries,” Peoples said. “I was concerned about the condition of the cyclist, so I had an officer go check up on her this afternoon and he reported that she was doing well.”

Peoples could not identify the hospital where the cyclist is being treated and said UTPD does not know when the hospital plans to release her.
