SOMERVILLE COUNTY, NJ – A 65-year-old bicyclist was hospitalized after a traffic collision at a Somerville County intersection on Tuesday morning.
According to RLS Media, a 75-year-old man was driving eastbound on West High Street in a Honda CR-V. He had a green light as he proceeded through the intersection at North Bridge Street where he struck the Somerville resident on a bike at about 10:40 a.m.
A local police officer, who had witnessed the crash, began immediately giving medical aid to the bicyclist. The injured man was transported to a local hospital with head trauma but is expected to recover.
It appears that the accident happened because the bicyclist ignored a red light and rode out in front of the oncoming vehicle. The driver remained on the scene and cooperated with authorities. He was not injured.
