VACAVILLE — A 62-year-old man is recovering from serious injuries after a collision with a vehicle that closed a portion of Alamo Drive Monday.

The incident occurred around 1 p.m. when a man riding his bike in the 3000 block of Alamo Drive reportedly left the bicycle lane and entered traffic. Police said the man attempted to make a left hand turn into a shopping center when he rode into the roadway and was struck by a pizza delivery driver.

Police said the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet and sustained a head trauma after he struck the windshield and the concrete. He was taken by ground ambulance to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. He was later listed in stable condition after regaining consciousness.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Traffic Officer Chad Hudson at 449-5282.
