A bicyclist was injured when he ran a red light and was hit by a car at Sixth and Mission streets in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon, a police spokesman said.
The cyclist, a San Francisco resident who is about 45 years old, was riding south on Sixth Street when the collision occurred at about 1:50 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.
“He was described as traveling at a high rate of speed, swerving in and out of lanes,” Andraychak said.
As he crossed Mission Street, allegedly running the red light, he was hit by an eastbound four-door gray Lexus driven by another San Francisco man in his 40s, Andraychak said.
The cyclist was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. He was not cited.
Although the driver does not appear to have been at fault for the collision, he was cited because he was driving on a suspended license, had false registration and did not have proof of insurance, Andraychak said.
