ST. GEORGE – A bicycle-versus-vehicle incident on River Road in St. George Tuesday ended with the bicyclist getting a citation.
Around 12:25 p.m., near 1450 S. River Road, a bicyclist was heading northbound and allegedly swerved into the lane of travel in front of a northbound 1998 Honda Civic, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said.
The Honda hit the bicyclist, who ended up landing on top of the car’s hood and also impacting the windshield. However, the bicyclist, who was also wearing a helmet, escaped major injury.
“Just basically some scrapes and bruises and nothing life-threatening or too serious,” Despain said.
The Honda’s driver was also unharmed, though the car itself sustained some dents and a cracked windshield.
After police arrived on scene and investigated the collision, they believed the bicyclist to be at fault and subsequently cited him for improper lane travel, Despain said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by UHP at the scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
