At approximately 0915, Sidney Police Officers and Medics were dispatched to the 2000 block of Michigan St on a report that a female riding a bicycle may have been struck by a vehicle and was in critical condition. A passerby in the area stopped and began life saving efforts until first responders arrived on scene. Sidney Fire Medics arrived on scene and transported the female, later identified as Jacqulynn North, age 20, to Wilson Health E.R.
