Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

A 35-year-old cyclist is in the hospital this morning after he was hit by car just before 6:30.

The car vs. bicycle accident happened at 6th and A Streets. Police say the car was traveling east on A, getting ready to turn left on to 6th, the street the cyclist was southbound on.

LPD says because it was dark, the driver did not see the cyclist and stuck him at the intersection as he turned. The cyclist was taken to Bryan West with minor neck and leg injuries. He was not wearing a helmet.

The driver was cited for an improper turn.
