A cyclist riding east on Broadway Boulevard approaching Wilmot Road was sent to the hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries when he struck a car that drove across his path this afternoon.
Tucson Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Matt Ronstadt said the driver, who was heading south attempting to enter a private driveway, failed to yield and crossed into the cyclist’s path.
The cyclist struck the side of the vehicle and was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
The driver was cited for failure to yield the right of way.
Messages on Facebook and Twitter said the cyclist’s carbon fiber bicycle was “completely destroyed.”
The police spokesperson said the cyclist was wearing a helmet.
