Cyclist sent to hospital after being hit by car in Somersworth
SOMERSWORTH — A cyclist was sent to the hospital after being knocked off his racing bike by a car along Route 9 this morning.
Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded to the intersection of Stackpole Road and High Street, which is Route 9, around 8:29 a.m. after a four-door sedan struck the biker when the car turned into a parking lot, according to Fire. Lt. Mike Clough.
“It wasn't a direct collision — he was just knocked off his bike,” Clough said, adding both vehicles were traveling in the same direction.
“It was a very minor crash,” Clough said.
Clough said an ambulance crew from American Medical Response transported the cyclist, who appeared to have sustained minor injuries to his shoulder, to Wentworth Douglas Hospital in Dover.
The identities of the cyclist and driver are not available at this time.
Police and firefighters cleared the scene around 9 a.m.
