Addison, a witness, pictured, was cleaning out beer lines at Rodan when he heard the sound of the crash. According to Addison and other eye witnesses who spoke with The Pipeline, the motorcyclist was traveling in the bicycle lane and going rather fast when he was hit by a car. UPDATE: See witness Nancy’s comments at bottom for further info.
14th district police, an ambulance, and a fire truck were on the scene within minutes. The driver of the car was present and was observed talking with police officers.
Two Milwaukee Avenue #56 CTA buses were stalled from the time of the accident until 4 p.m.
It does not appear to be a fatal injury.
“Are you taking pictures? That’s sick!” a passerby told us.
The Pipeline replied that our father died in an car accident, and had there of been photos, we too would have had the same reaction of disgust. We’re not “ambulance chasers” nor do we enjoy that kind of news. So here’s a faraway shot.
