The University of Delaware has settled with the family of a student who died months after being struck by the rider of a bicycle.

“Matthew Rosin, a junior at the University of Delaware, suffered a critical brain injury October 23, 2015 after being struck by a bicycle while walking near the Trabant University Center, and passed away on March 23, 2016. Litigation brought by his family following the accident has now been resolved. While the terms of that resolution are confidential, it is the parties’ mutual goal to prevent a tragedy like this from occurring again. As part of that effort, the University will establish a bicycle safety committee this fall to review and make recommendations about the use of bicycles on and about campus. The University will also be affixing a plaque near the Trabant Student Center patio to commemorate Matthew Rosin’s life.”
