A bicyclist was taken to the hospital on Sunday afternoon after being struck by a car in Morristown, police said.
Cycling northbound on Western Avenue just before 1 pm, Domingo Rodriguez, 43, of Morristown, had entered the Ann Street intersection when he was hit by a 2012 Hyundai Elantra driven by Morristown resident Michelle Close, 63, who was heading towards Western Avenue from Ann Street, said Police Lt. Stuart Greer.
Both parties denied seeing the other prior to the collision. Rodriguez told police he had been pedaling on the sidewalk prior to entering the crosswalk, Greer said.
Rodriguez complained of “minor leg pain” and was transported to Morristown Medical Center by the Morristown Fire Bureau, Greer said.
Police are continuing to investigate who is at fault. Anyone who witnessed the collision or has other pertinent information is asked to contact Lt. Matthew Rawding at 973-292-6692,
