Bicyclist Injured In Crash

A 23-year-old Jamestown man sustained serious injuries Tuesday after a vehicle struck his bicycle in the city.

According to Jamestown Police and eyewitnesses, the man – whose name was not released – was riding his bicycle along with several others down the hill near 10 Thayer St. shortly after 7 p.m.

Upon reaching the bottom of the hill, the cyclists made a sharp right turn onto Crescent Street, where a northbound vehicle struck the victim – who was reportedly at the back of the pack.

The victim is believed to have sustained a broken leg and injuries to his neck and hip. He was transported to WCA Hospital by Alstar Ambulance.

The driver of the vehicle was uninjured.

Charges are pending further investigation.

Neighbors, who were observing the scene from their porches, indicated that the intersection between Thayer and Crescent streets does not have a stop sign and has led to many close calls in the past.
