DETROIT (WWJ) - A woman riding a bike in Midtown is in critical condition after smashing into a semi truck trailer Tuesday morning.

According to Detroit police, the semi truck was stationary at a four-way stop in the area of Temple and 3rd Street around 10 a.m., and a 25-year-old woman on bike ran into the trailer traveling at a "high rate of speed."

She fell underneath the truck -- which did not move, police said. The woman was taken to a local hospital and is listed in critical condition. The woman's mother tells a conflicting story, saying the truck turned into the victim and struck her while she was riding.
