A rural Lawrence man was ticketed Monday afternoon after he clipped the elbow of a bicyclist while trying to pass a group of riders south of Lawrence.
Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said the cyclist, Michelle Jensen, 36, of Lawrence, had a possible injury but was not taken to the hospital from the scene.
The incident occurred at 2:50 p.m. Monday in the 900 block of County Road 458 southwest of Lawrence. Ronald Wilson, 63, the driver of a 1987 Chevrolet pickup truck, was attempting to pass a group of four cyclists while headed east, but the truck’s side mirror struck Jensen’s left elbow.
Lewis said Wilson was cited for passing on the left with insufficient clearance.
