FAIRBANKS -- A Fairbanks man on a bicycle was seriously injured in a crash with a small SUV.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the man, who is in his 60s, was left paralyzed by the Saturday afternoon crash.
Witnesses gave police conflicting accounts of the accident.
Officer Dave Elzey says when the collision occurred, the man was northbound on the sidewalk along Old Steese Highway as the SUV turned onto the street from Northgate Square. The cyclist was thrown onto the pavement.
He was wearing a helmet but was unable to move his arms and legs afterward. He was transported to a Fairbanks hospital and then to Providence Medical Center in Anchorage.
