FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — A man is in life-threatening condition after being struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle at the intersection of Lake Avenue and Tecumseh Street Wednesday night.
Police arrived shortly after 8:30 and initially found the bicyclist alert and conscious with a laceration to his head.
The man stated he had head pain, and paramedics transported him to a local hospital in serious condition, which was later changed to a life-threatening condition by a physician, according to police.
Police say a witness reported the bicyclist failed to yield the right-of-way and entered the intersection as the vehicle proceeded through the intersection on a green traffic light.
The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.
A family member of the bicyclist emailed WANE 15 saying the man received a concussion and some stitches, but was not held in the hospital overnight.
The incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
