A Chico State student was taken to the hospital Monday afternoon after she was struck by a car while biking to class.

The accident happened just before 2 p.m. on the 500 block of Nord Ave near campus, and emergency responders say the victim suffered moderate injuries, but will recover.

Authorities say drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the accident.

Chico State students returned to class for the fall semester Monday and as a result bicycle and pedestrian traffic downtown has greatly increased. Drivers should always be aware of their surroundings and use caution when traveling through the area.
