Dartmouth student bicycles into car next to Baker Library
Taken to hospital but injuries not believed to be serious
HANOVER, NH - A Dartmouth undergraduate on a bicycle T-boned a ZipCar just before 10 a.m. Monday morning in an intersection on the west side of the college's landmark Baker-Berry Library complex but, although she was initially down on the pavement for several minutes, her injuries are not believed to be serious.
"She's going to be alright," Hanover Deputy Chief Michael Hinsley said at the scene shortly after the young woman had been transported to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center by a Hanover Ambulance crew that had responded to the scene.
Hinsley said the cyclist came off of Webster Avenue and struck the ZipCar which was traveling on North Main Street right between Dartmouth's Carson and Rockefeller buildings.
Traffic, including several Advance Transit buses, was stuck on North Main for about a half-hour while emergency services and police worked at the scene.
