DPD Reports a Cyclist Hit on Katy Trail

Speaking of the need for Complete Streets ...

On Sunday morning, Angela Hunt wrote on her website:
Last week, I met with city staff and Friends of the Katy Trail board members to discuss ways to make the trail safer in response to Lauren Huddleston's tragic death. We will have a plan to address trail safety for all users within 45 days.
Time, it would seem, is of the essence: Dallas Police just sent word that about an hour ago, a cyclist was taken to the hospital following a collision with a car. This note thus far, pending further updates:
According to witness, a bicyclist stopped at stop sign at Harvard Street and Cole Avenue and then proceeded to cross Cole Avenue, when she was lightly struck by a vehicle traveling on Cole Street with no stop sign. The bicyclist was transported to Baylor with minor injuries. This accident is under investigation by the Dallas Police Department's Traffic Division.
