(Updated at 4:05 p.m.) A cyclist was struck by a driver at the intersection of Wilson Blvd and 10th Street N., near Clarendon., Friday morning.
Initial reports suggest the cyclist had severe injuries, including head trauma. The crash was first radioed in around 10:30 a.m. by a police officer who was on a traffic stop nearby.
The bicycle could be seen under a black Jeep on the west side of the intersection, in front of the Speedway gas station. A bike rack with a PeopleForBikes sticker could be seen on the back of the Jeep.
The victim was rushed via ambulance to a local trauma center.
“The cyclist was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries,” Arlington County Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage confirmed. “The driver of the striking vehicle remained on scene. The investigation is ongoing.”
The intersection was partially closed by police but reopened as of 11:30 a.m., after detectives documented the scene.
Police said later Friday afternoon that the driver will face a traffic charge in the crash.
“[The driver] was cited with failure to yield,” said Savage. “The cyclist’s injuries are considered non-life threatening.”
