A 33-year-old Lawrence cyclist hit a car head-on while turning from Bob Billings Parkway onto Crossgate Drive on Monday. He was transferred by ground ambulance to a Topeka-area hospital after the air ambulance was prevented from taking off because of adverse weather.
Lawrence Police Sgt. Randy Roberts said the cyclist hit a four-door sedan making a right turn as he was making a left turn. Police were called to the scene just after 6:30 p.m. The cyclist was not wearing a helmet and his injuries were believed to be severe, but not life-threatening.
No citations were issued at the scene and the investigation had been turned over to detectives as of Monday night.
