A black Chevy Silverado hit a bicyclist Tuesday just south of the Hartshorn Health Center parking lot on the Colorado State University campus.

The accident occurred around 2 p.m. when the driver of the Silverado was exiting the Hartshorn Health Center Z lot. A woman on her bike was hit by the truck, according to witness Amarley Amartey, a junior studying human development and family studies. She said there was no blood on the scene.

It is not clear yet whether the driver or the bicyclist are CSU students.

The driver of the Silverado declined to comment. There were multiple police officers and an ambulance on the scene. Traffic was backed up into the Morgan Library parking lot waiting for the accident to clear.
