Description:

Construction van approached a red light and stopped, just as the light turned green. I was in the bike lane beside, and the passenger in the van opened the door. I dodged, struck the door with my handle bars, and bailed onto the sidewalk. I was unharmed, but the vehicle drove away before this could be established. A pedestrian witness left their information in case I needed help to track them down.
