A collision between two drivers struggling for the right of way on northbound state Route 67 today sent one of them into the bicycle lane where it struck a rider, a sheriff's deputy said.
The drivers of a Volvo S 60 and a Dodge Ram 3500 collided about 9:45 a.m. where state Route 67 transitions from two lanes to one north of Poway Road, sheriff's Deputy Aaron Meleen said. He did not say which of the drivers would have had the right of way.
The passenger side of the Volvo bumped the drivers side of the Dodge, which then veered into the bicycle lane on the right side of the road and struck the bicyclist, Meleen said.
The bicyclist was taken to Palomar Medical Center to be treated for severe injuries, Meleen said.
Meleen asked anyone who saw the crash to call (858) 513-2820.—City News Service
