UPDATE 10/23/15: Police said the woman struck was not actually killed in the crash but was talking and in "stable condition" as of Friday.

LINCOLN PARK — A truck driver struck a woman on her bike Thursday afternoon at a busy three-way intersection, officials said.

Around 12:15 p.m., a man driving a Ford F-650 pickup truck at the intersection of Halsted Street, Fullerton Parkway and Lincoln Avenue made a right turn onto Halsted and hit a 38-year-old woman on her bike, according to Officer Nicole Trainor, Chicago Police Department spokeswoman.

It's unclear whether the cyclist was stopped at the red light, or if she was moving when the accident occurred, Trainor said.

The woman was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center with injuries to her head, neck and left side of her body. Police said Thursday the woman had died at the hospital, but on Friday they corrected that account, saying she was "stable" and talking. 

The driver of the truck was issued a ticket, Trainor said. He is due in traffic court Dec. 11.

Michael Federico, who works in the building above the McDonald's at 2400 N. Lincoln Ave., which overlooks the intersection, said one of his co-workers saw the victim with her bike on the sidewalk — not in the street — when she was hit.

Between 2009 and 2013, there were 184 crashes involving cars, cyclists and pedestrians in a 150-foot radius of the busy intersection, according to Steven Vance's Chicago Crash Browser, which includes the most recently made available data from IDOT.

Of the 184 reported crashes in the area, 24 of them involved a cyclist or a pedestrian.

The data includes include anytime two cars crashed where anyone was injured and instances in which the property damage was $1,500 or greater.

In accidents involving either a car and a cyclist or a car and a pedestrian, the data includes those in which the cyclist and pedestrian were the first points of impact.
