Department head injured after colliding with car

Sean Michael, department head of landscape architecture and environmental planning, was injured Wednesday after colliding with a car on 800 East. Michael was descending 800 East on his bicycle when the vehicle he was following turned left to enter the underground parking for Kampus Korner. According to witnesses at the scene, Michael attempted to pass the vehicle on its left side, striking it in the area of the driver’s side window and breaking through the glass with his head and shoulder. Scott Egbert, a junior in economics, witnessed the accident from his apartment in Kampus Korner and said that to his knowledge, Michaels appeared to be traveling at an approximate rate of 25 mph. “The biker t-boned the jeep,” Egbert said. Inside the vehicle were two female students; the driver, who wished to remain unnamed, and Dani Jensen, who was in the passenger seat. “I was texting and didn’t know what was going on,” Jensen said. “I heard (the driver) scream and looked up and there was glass flying at me.”
