Minor injuries for bicyclist in collision with vehicle in St. Charles

ST. CHARLES – A teenage bicyclist got "really lucky" Thursday when a collision with a vehicle resulted in only minor injuries, St. Charles Police Department spokesperson Lisa Blackwell said.

The accident happened at about 3 p.m. at Red Gate Road and River's Ridge Drive, an intersection near St. Charles North High School that is controlled by a traffic light.

The 16-year-old bicyclist was cited for riding a bicycle through a red light, Blackwell said. The motorist was not ticketed.

The teen suffered from some road rash, Blackwell said, describing the injuries as minor.

She said this is a reminder that bicyclists need to obey the rules of the road.

"He got really lucky," Blackwell said.
