Clark Street bicyclist right hooked, falls and hurts ankle

Type

Right hook
Had to stop abruptly

What happened

I was biking northbound on Clark past the Francis Parker School. I had been riding next to this black SUV. Suddenly the driver decides to turn into a parking lot. I got right hooked. Had to slam on my brakes, swerved off the road and landed on my ankle wrong 🙁

Suggested improvements for this location: this woman should have been paying attention.

Ed. note: The street is too narrow to accommodate existing parking and a bike lane. The bike lane would have made a minor improvement on visibility of bicyclists.
