A bicyclist is in the hospital after being struck by a central Fresno driver Thursday night.
It happened around 7 p.m. near Belmont Avenue and First Street, according to Fresno Police Lt. Tim Tietjen.
He says the bicyclist blew a stop sign on Belmont Avenue, and the driver didn’t see him in time to stop.
The victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries, Tietjen says.
The driver stayed at the scene and is cooperative with the investigation.
Alcohol being a factor in the collision has not been ruled out.
