Description:

I was biking down King st. W on a Saturday evening on a city bike. I was dark out. The street was fairly empty as I was the last to cross an intersection before a red light. The driver of a black SUV opened his door just as I was biking past, hitting my front wheel and sending me flying forward. Was really shaken but wasn't visibly injured (ended up getting a big bruise on my right knee and hurting my palm) but no cuts or anything. The driver came out to look at any damage to his door and ask if I was alright. I was shaken up and just wanted to get out of there so I didn't get any contact information or details.
