Around 6:00 P.M., an elderly man was bicycling on University Drive when he was apparently struck by a bus. The victim was rushed to Albany Medical Center, but is not believed to have suffered life threatening injuries. Upon learning of the collision, CDTA and police investigators examined at least two buses for damage and questioned their drivers. According to nearby residents, the victim was an experienced bicyclist who had been riding in the area for decades.

According to statistics provided by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, there were over 6,000 accidents between motor vehicles and bicyclists in 2012 alone. Many drivers are unaware that bicyclists in New York have the same rights, responsibilities, and duties as the drivers of cars and trucks.
