SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - President Street near Pennsylvania Avenue was shut down following a bicyclist crash Sunday night.

Georgia State Patrol says a car hit a bicyclist around 10 p.m., causing minor injuries. The bicyclist was heading west on President Street, in the middle of the right lane, and the vehicle was also heading west.

The vehicle approached the bicyclist from behind and hit the bicycle from its front left. GSP says the driver was unable to see the bicyclist due to the bicyclist’s dark clothes, lack of reflectors on the bicycle and the dark roadway.

The bicyclist sustained minor hip injuries, according to GSP. President Street was closed to westbound traffic for two hours.

Georgia State Patrol is leading the investigation into this crash.
