A bicyclist and pedestrian collided in the Olive Street tunnel on the University of Arizona campus this morning.
Bicycle Tucson reader Nathan Saxton sent the photo and said medics has responded to the scene. He said the pedestrian was sitting up, but seemed disoriented.
“In the 10 minutes I was there, I saw three cyclists nearly run right into crowd,” Saxton wrote via Facebook messenger. “We complain about drivers not paying attention, but I’m afraid cyclists do the same thing on shared use paths.”
The Olive Street tunnel has had it’s share of collisions. Including one in 2010 that left a student with broken teeth and a torn muscle.
Following the crash in 2010, the UA’s Parking and Transportation department restriped the underpass and added more pavement markings to highlight conflict points and reminded pedestrians to look before crossing the path. They also set a 10 mile per hour speed limit in the underpass.
