Bicyclist careens into RamRide car

On Thursday night, a RamRide car was headed north on College Avenue when a bicyclist was going east on Olive Street and careened into the left side of the vehicle, according to the Associated Students of CSU.

No ticket was given to the RamRide car’s driver, but there was one issued to the bicyclist, said Robert Duran, chief of staff for ASCSU. He was transported to Poudre Valley Hospital immediately following the accident.


RamRide Director Becky Ewing said conversations with CSU’s administration revealed that the bicyclist is not a CSU student.

Thursday’s incident marks the third collision RamRide has experienced over the 2012 fall semester, one of which was RamRide’s fault.

“It is a large number for RamRide and it is something we’re looking at,” Ewing said, later adding “ … We’re trying to figure out if there is anything on our end.”

Typically, the saferide program experiences one or no accidents at all in a given semester.

Delta Sigma Phi was the student organizations staffing RamRide at the time, although the driver of the car involved in the accident was not volunteering through the group.
