A bicyclist was taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after being hit by a car on University Avenue in Palo Alto, Palo Alto police Lt. Sandra Brown said. His injuries were not life-threatening, but early reports indicate one of his legs had a compound fracture, though that has not yet been confirmed, Brown said.
The crash occurred at 3:35 p.m. near the intersection of University and Lincoln avenues. Police are investigating the collision.
In a separate crash Thursday, a bicyclist was hit on El Camino Real near Hanover Street in Palo Alto at about 6:30 p.m., Brown said. That bicyclist's face was cut, and he was transported to the hospital as a precaution. His injury was not life-threatening. More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
