FAIRFIELD — A 58-year-old Fairfield bicyclist was hospitalized early Wednesday afternoon after he was struck by a car while crossing Beck Avenue, according to Fairfield police.
He and another cyclist were crossing Beck Avenue to Boynton Avenue just before 1:43 p.m. They had just come out of a driveway on the east side of Beck Avenue just north of West Texas Street when they rode in front of a northbound Toyota Camry driven by a 21-year-olde Fairfield woman.
The woman tried unsuccessfully to stop and struck the cyclist, who was knocked up onto the hood of her car, breaking the windshield on the driver’s side before rolling off onto the street. Police said he had head injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening, and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
