A woman riding a bicycle suffered significant injuries after a collision with a vehicle in Zion Thursday evening, police said.

The Zion Fire Rescue Department and Zion Police Department responded around 7:30 p.m. Thursday to the area of 27th Street and Gabriel Avenue for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

Zion Police Chief Kirk Henderson said that evidence indicates the driver of a 2015 Cadillac was traveling eastbound on 27th Street and the bicyclist was traveling northbound on Gabriel Avenue.

The bicyclist, a 52-year-old Zion woman, collided with the car in the intersection, which is a four-way intersection controlled by stop signs.

The woman suffered significant injuries to her head and torso. She was transported by ambulance to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

The driver of the Cadillac remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Henderson said.
