CFD: Cyclist killed in Lakeview crash

October 21, 2009 (CHICAGO) Police say two bicyclists went around a CTA bus at a stop. One of the cyclists was then hit by a truck.

A witness ran over to comfort her.

"I never left her side. I kept talking to her and praying with her and she just started sweating and her pulse came back, finally I told her the ambulance is on the way, you'll be OK," said Veronica Rengert.

The young woman was pronounced dead a short time later. Police said she was not wearing a helmet.
