A bicyclist suffered serious injuries and will be transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital after he was struck from behind by a car while riding on the Angeles Crest Highway Tuesday night, a sheriff's official said.
The 30-year-old male, who is a resident of Oregon, was hit from behind while riding his bike east on the ACH, said Lt. Angela Shepard of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. Authorities received an emergency call at 5:44 p.m., she said.
"I don't know who's fault it was," Shepard said. "The car that was behind him hit him."
Shepard did not know the extent of the bicyclist's injuries, describing them only as "major." The bicyclist's injuries were caused by the collision and he was not knocked over the railing, she said.
