The College junior had fallen at about 8:20 p.m., and was struck from behind as she began to pick up the bicycle a few seconds later. The car, a Volvo, was driven by a male College junior. The student was thrown, but remained conscious. University Police officers attributed the accident to poor weather and low visibility. "If it hadn't been wet and slippery, she probably would not have fallen," said University Police Officer David McDonald. He said that he has no reason to believe that alcohol was involved and that there is no evidence of reckless driving. Philadelphia Police are investigating the accident. Officer Josh Lachs said that the front grill of the Volvo was torn off. "She must have been lucky," said Lachs. "She was in pretty good spirits when they took her away."
