Cyclist Hit in Silver Lake near Fletcher and Riverside Drives

A bicyclist was hit Saturday afternoon in Silver Lake near Riverside Drive and the 5 Freeway.

She was wearing a helmet and escaped with minor injuries, according to City News Service.

She collided with what looked to be a silver pickup truck just before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Fletcher and Riverside drives in Silver Lake.

An early alert from the Los Angeles Fire Department suggested she may have been trapped beneath a vehicle, but that was not the case.

She was transported by LAFD to Glendale Memorial Hospital, according to a spokesperson at the LAPD's Central Traffic Division, which handled the incident.

Traffic was backed up briefly along Fletcher Drive going north while paramedics and police investigated the incident.
