Bicyclist Falls, Hit By Truck On Bourne Bridge

BOURNE (CBS) – A bicyclist was rushed to the hospital early Monday morning after he was hit by a truck on the Bourne Bridge.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.

State police say the unidentified 55-year-old man was riding southbound on Route 28 when he fell off his bike for some unknown reason, around 5:40 a.m.

He was then hit by a tractor-trailer and ended up trapped in the undercarriage of the truck.

Police shut down the bridge for more than a half-an-hour so they could get the man out.

He was taken to the hospital on a MedFlight rescue helicopter. There’s no word yet on his condition.
