A 77-year-old bicyclist was severely injured after getting hit by a car on the 2700 block of Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla, Tuesday, Nov. 5 authorities said. The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The cyclist was traveling uphill in the righthand bike lane when he collided with a vehicle approaching from behind in the righthand traffic lane, San Diego Police spokesperson Ed Zwibel said. The cyclist, reportedly wearing a helmet, was thrown to the ground and sustained serious head injuries and other injuries. The cause of the incident is still under investigation, but alcohol and drugs were not a factor, Zwibel said. The driver was a 66-year-old female.
