FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police and Framingham firefighters responded to Route 135 and Route 126 on Independence Day for a cyclist struck around 8;30 p.m.

“The operator of the motor vehicle was making a right hand turn” from Route 135 to Route 126, explained Police spokesperson Lt. Rachel Mickens. “A cyclist rode his bike across Concord St (in the crosswalk) and hit the side of the motor vehicle.”
The man, 35, was “complaining of neck and back injuries,” said Framingham Fire Chief Michael Dutcher.
He was transported by ambulance to MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham.
No citation has been issued, said Lt. Mickens.
