Student cyclist struck by SUV on Greek Row

DPS is currently investigating.

A student traveling southbound by bicycle on University Avenue was struck by a large car around 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the USC Department of Public Safety.

The collision occurred at the intersection of 28th and University Avenue, on the Greek Row. The student was taken to Engemann Student Health Center, but she declined to be taken to a hospital for care. Emergency vehicles had halted traffic within 10 minutes, but the area had been cleared and traffic had resumed by 8:20, according to DPS Assistant Chief David Carlisle.

The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity gardener, who was working near the intersection at the time of the accident, blamed the error on stop sign negligence.

“[Students] don’t even watch where they’re going," he said.

According to Carlisle, DPS is currently investigating the cause of the incident.

Correction: A previous version of this story stated that a student was traveling southbound by bicycle on 28th Street. It was on University Avenue.
