Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers treat a 52-year-old Lawrence man after his bicycle collided with a city sanitation vehicle at Lyon and North Second streets in North Lawrence. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the bicyclist received a citation for operating a bicycle without brakes. The sanitation vehicle’s driver at 11:20 a.m. was completing a legal left turn when the cyclist, who was northbound on the east sidewalk, entered the intersection and struck the city truck, Sarna said. The cyclist was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, and injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, police said.
