CORNWALL – A bicyclist has been set to hospital after a collision at the intersection of Thirteenth and Pitt Streets.

Cornwall police told Cornwall Newswatch the cyclist, who was on a mountain bike with no lights, had non-life threatening injuries.

He was taken to hospital by paramedics.

The collision involved a four-door sedan.

Part of the intersection was closed to traffic Wednesday night as firefighters cleaned up blood from the center line of Pitt Street just south of the Thirteenth Street.

Witness Ian Callan, who tended to the victim, said the cyclist wasn’t wearing a helmet and was bleeding badly from the head.

The man was also complaining of pain in his leg, Callan said.

A police investigation is ongoing.
