Bicycle vs Semi

Police say a crash between a bicycle and a semi-tractor trailer on Phillips and Havens streets Thursday afternoon sent one man to the hospital in critical condition. 

According to Kokomo Police Department Maj. Brian Seldon, a bicycle operated by a male appearing to be in his 50s was traveling westbound on Havens Street when he failed to yield to the semi-tractor trailer that was traveling north on Phillips Street.

The bicyclist was then struck, Seldon said, and he was taken by ambulance to St. Vincent's Hospital before being lifelined to another area hospital.

The driver of the semi-tractor trailer was uninjured in the incident, but Seldon said he was also taken to the hospital for a blood draw, per standard procedures. 

Police did not immediately release the names of either individual involved in the incident. 

The crash remains under investigation at this time.
