NEWARK, Del. (AP) - The family of a University of Delaware student who is unconscious nearly four months after being struck by a bicyclist is suing the school, accusing the university of failing to create rules to keep bicycles off busy campus sidewalks.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/217kxBn ) reports that the lawsuit was filed this month in Delaware Superior Court and says the university was negligent by not protecting Matthew Rosin and other students attending an outdoor campus event near the Trabant University Center on Oct. 23.

Rosin, a junior, was struck by a bicyclist at the event and knocked unconscious when he fell backward, hitting his head. The lawsuit says he remains unconscious at a hospital in New York City.

University spokeswoman Andrea Boyle Tippett declined to comment on the lawsuit.
