A cyclist was transported to the hospital today after he collided with another cyclist in the wrong lane on the Boulder Creek Path.
The collision happened around 11:18 a.m. today near Arapahoe Avenue and 13th Street, according to Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel. A group of 10 teenagers visiting Boulder from New York was bicycling on the path, and witnesses said one of them was headed eastbound in the westbound bike lane.
An adult male heading west collided with the teen, and suffered lacerations to his face. He was transported to the hospital, Kobel said.
The teen was not seriously injured and did not need to be transported.
Kobel said no tickets will be issued in the case. While the teen was reportedly in the wrong lane, witnesses also said the adult was riding at 20 mph to 25 mph in an area where the speed limit on the bike path was 8 mph.
"They both helped create the issue," Kobel said.
Because no citations were issued, names for the parties involved were not available.
