The 27-year-old Logan Square cyclist was riding up Kimball Avenue just after midnight Tuesday, when a maroon or purple colored SUV pulled up beside her, and a hand shot out toward her from inside it. In just seconds, she was being pulled up the street by the handle of her messenger bag, and crashed into a parked car.
The fall happened near the cross streets of Kimball Avenue and Wrightwood
Avenue, according to police officials. Kinsman said she landed on her left arm
and hip, and sustained bruises and road rash on her arms and legs, but no broken
Kinsman spoke to Chicago Police officers on the scene around 12:20 a.m., and
they labeled the incident a hit-and-run.
