15th Ave. SE & 4th St. SE. 4/21/2011 by Todd O’Dowd

It was a tragic morning on campus today…

A dump truck turning at a busy intersection Thursday morning near the University of Minnesota hit and killed a student on a bicycle, authorities said.

This crash and others of late have prompted police to crack down on enforcing the rules of the road involving vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles.

Thursday’s deadly collision occurred about 7:50 a.m. near 15th Avenue and 4th Street SE., according to Minneapolis police.

The woman was identified by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office as Kimberly Yeong Sil Hull, 25, of St. Paul. The university said Hull was a senior in the College of Liberal Arts.
