Officials said the man suffered “traumatic injuries” that appeared to be significant. At last check, police said he was in stable condition at the hospital.
According to fire officials, the ambulance had a hard time getting to the hospital due to low visibility from the heavy fog, and it’s possible the driver never saw the cyclist.
While on scene, police said they noticed the smell of marijuana on the driver of the vehicle. Officers performed a field sobriety test, which the driver passed, and later found less than an ounce of marijuana inside the vehicle. The 20-year-old was cited for possession of marijuana and due car by drivers, police said.
The driver was high, but it is still probably the victim’s fault and most certainly not the fault of the person who designed the road.
