The man who was taken to the hospital was suffering from several broken bones and cuts, he said.

Struble did not know whether the other bicyclist was a man or a woman but said the person sustained minor cuts and was not taken to the hospital.

Struble did not know whether the bicyclists were wearing helmets.

One of the bicyclists was intoxicated, he said.
