UO student hospitalized after bike accident

A 19-year-old freshman was transferred to the hospital around 5 p.m. this afternoon after his front tire came loose and fell off. He flipped over his handlebars and landed face first on the ground.

Still conscience, the student complained of jaw pain, sore teeth and a headache.

Danielle Koire, a UO freshman, was walking out of class on 13th by the EMU when she saw the loose tire roll by and then the student hit the ground immediately after. She called 911  twice before help arrived.

Matt Halpin, a UO senior, and Ashley Barnhill, a UO junior, both have response training. They examined the student before the ambulance arrived.

UOPD could not be immediately reached for comment.
