A 26-year-old Ohio State student was injured when the bike he was riding was struck by a vehicle driven by Ohio State assistant coach Greg Schiano, the Columbus Dispatch has reported.
The accident happened just before 7 a.m. local time yesterday morning. The Dispatch writes that “[t]he man… suffered a head injury but is expected to survive.” He’s currently listed in stable condition at a local hospital.
Schiano was not injured. From the newspaper:
The crash remains under investigation. Schiano was traveling east and turning north onto Fred Taylor Drive when he struck the westbound bicyclist, police said.
“We are very concerned about the young man who was injured,” an OSU spokesperson said in a statement. “Our concern lies with supporting him in every way we can.”
The former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach is in his first season with the Buckeyes as Urban Meyer‘s associate head coach and, along with Luke Fickell, defensive coordinator.
No. 2 OSU is on a bye this weekend before playing host to Rutgers in Week 5 in the Buckeyes’ Big Ten opener.
