A bicyclist was hospitalized late Monday after being hit by a construction vehicle on the unfinished Westside Parkway.
Bakersfield police said the man was riding his bike without reflector lights just after 10 p.m., and the driver didn't see him. The man on the bicycle was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.
Officers said they don't believe the cyclist was wearing a helmet when he was hit. The Westside Parkway is still under construction and is not scheduled to officially open until August 2nd.
The bicyclist's name had not been released, as of Tuesday morning.
