SEATTLE, Wash. - A bicyclist was struck by an SUV and critically injured late Thursday afternoon in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood.
Seattle firefighters took the cyclist, a man in his 30s, to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.
Firefighters say the bicyclist was wearing a helmet, but his head went through the passenger window of the Subaru Forester.
Seattle police traffic collision investigators and a drug recognition expert responded to the scene at the intersection of Dexter Avenue North and Harrison Street.
Car and bicycle collisions are a big concern in Seattle.
Thursday's crash happened one block north of where Michael Wang was killed in July 2011.
Wang, 44, a photographer for PATH, was hit by an SUV.
A 28-year-old Normandy Park man was arrested in June 2012 in Wang's death and sentenced to 41 months in prison for the fatal hit-and-run.
