(Posted via phone) A female bicyclist was in critical condition when she was transported by ambulance to St. Joseph after she struck a truck on Industrial Drive in Saline around 4 PM Wednesday.
Saline Police are not revealing the name of the bicyclist.
Sgt. Jay Basso said it appears the bicyclist was southbound on the west sidewalk on Industrial Drive when she turned left into traffic at the crosswalk at Campus Parkway and struck the moving asphalt hauler.
The preliminary investigation shows the truck had a green light, Basso said.
The bicyclist's helmet was found 20 feet from the bicycle. A crash investigation team from Pittsfield Township was called to assist with the investigation.
The truck was returning from a construction project at Liehberr.
