Rahm To The Rescue: Mayor Helps Injured Cyclist

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel reportedly ran to the aid of a bicyclist involved in an accident with a semi-truck this morning.

The biker was blindsided by a moving truck on Milwaukee Avenue around 8:30 a.m.

The accident happened near a coffee spot called Big Shoulders near the intersection of Milwaukee, Chicago and Ogden avenues in West Town.

Emanuel is said to be a local there and stopped by for his morning cup of Joe and he and others, like the coffee shop owner, heard a terrible crash outside.
