Two injured after cyclist collided with portable toilet door as man exited

Police in Chesterton, Indiana, responded to a crash on Monday night involving a bicycle rider and porta-potty door.

Officers were called to assist EMS just before 7:30pm because of an incident on town property.

According to the victims and a witness, a 52-year-old Chesterton man was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk, passing a portable restroom at the same time a 68-year-old Pleasant Township man was exiting the restroom.

The man on the bike collided with the potty door, throwing the Pleasant Township man back into the restroom, causing him to cut his elbow. The collision caused the Chesterton man to fall off his bike and strike his head on the concrete sidewalk. Both were treated on the scene by EMS, but refused transportation to a hospital.

Cyclists have a term for having a door opened on you (usually happens while cycling down the street, though). It's called "winning the door prize."
