Officials investigate the scene of a crash that trapped a cyclist under an SUV on Thursday at the intersection of Arapahoe Avenue and 38th and Marine streets in Boulder. The female cyclist was taken to a hospital.

A cyclist who was trapped under an SUV after a crash at Marine Street and Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder has been taken to a hospital.

The cyclist’s injuries are non-life threatening, according to a statement Friday morning from the Boulder Police Department.

The crash took place in the intersection of Arapahoe Avenue and Marine and 38th streets in the southwest crosswalk.

Police radio traffic indicated the woman was conscious while she was trapped under the vehicle. Radio traffic initially indicated the vehicle was a truck, but it was an SUV.

Arapahoe Avenue was closed at Marine Street and 38th Avenue, but has since been reopened. However, there are still significant delays in the area, and drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes.

The police department also put the city on accident alert. That means motorists in noninjury crashes that are not blocking traffic should exchange information and report the incident at a later time.
