SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – Springfield police say it appears that a bicyclist hit by a vehicle early Wednesday morning had failed to stop at a stop sign at Centennial Blvd., just before he was hit.

The bicyclist was riding northbound on 6th Street when he entered the intersection and was hit by an eastbound vehicle. Police said the bicyclist failed to obey the stop sign, entered the vehicular lane of travel on Centennial Blvd., and was hit. There was no evidence that the bicyclist was within the bicycle lane at the intersection when he was hit.

Police said the driver of the vehicle that hit the man stopped immediately and is cooperating with the investigation.

Police arriving at the crash found the bicyclist unconscious and not breathing. He was taken by ambulance to RiverBend Hospital in Springfield. He is currently in the intensive care unit with multiple rib fractures and head trauma. Police said he is expected to recover.

Neither speed nor alcohol are considered to be factors in the collision.
