Driver collides with cyclist

A driver and a bicyclist collided in Park Meadows Sunday afternoon, leaving the bicyclist with scrapes and bruises, the Park City Police Department said.

The accident was reported at 3:34 p.m. at the intersection of Meadows Drive and Silver Cloud Drive. Phil Kirk, a Police Department captain, said the vehicle was stopped at a stop sign at the intersection as the bicyclist rode south on Meadows Drive. The driver turned left onto Meadows Drive from Silver Cloud Drive, colliding with the bicyclist, Kirk said. He said the bicyclist did not have a stop sign.

The bicyclist is a 64-year-old woman from Park City. The driver, a 54-year-old man from the Netherlands, was in a 2017 GMC Acadia, Kirk said.

Kirk said the police were told the sun was low in the sky at the time of the accident and might have hindered the visibility of the driver. The investigation is continuing.
