Officers responded to a report of a vehicle that crashed into a bicycle at the intersection of Duboce and Mission streets at around 9:45 a.m., San Francisco police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

A 30-year-old woman from San Francisco was driving a Toyota sedan through the intersection when she struck a 24-year-old man on a bike, Andraychak said.

The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

A preliminary investigation revealed the bicyclist entered the intersection against a red light, according to police.

The driver of the Toyota stopped after the crash and cooperated with police.

Drugs or alcohol were not believed to be a factor in the crash.

    That nasty Toyota… running a green light and getting in the way of the sacred bicyclist. Just because his traffic light was red it didn’t apply to him only to those gas burning autos. They need to ban all four wheeled gas burners from the streets of San Francisco
