The 39-year-old Spring Lake woman was bicycling north on the sidewalk along Beacon Boulevard and was crossing the driveway leading to Tim Horton’s shortly after 11 a.m. when she was struck by a Honda Odyssey van leaving the restaurant, police said.
The cyclist complained of pain, but she had no obvious external injuries, police said. An ambulance transported her to North Ottawa Community Hospital to be checked.
The driver of the van, a 35-year-old Grand Haven woman, was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way.
Police said that “pedestrians always have the right of way,” but both drivers and cyclists should be watching out for each other when crossing sidewalks or approaching driveways.
