Police vehicle, bicyclist collide in central Las Vegas

A bicyclist was hospitalized early Monday morning after he was struck by a Metropolitan Police patrol vehicle in central Las Vegas.

The “slow speed collision” was called in about 2:50 a.m. at a gas station at 2000 N. Rainbow Blvd., near Lake Mead Boulevard, according to Metro Lt. David Gordon.

The cyclist suffered a small cut near his eyebrow, Gordon said, but his injuries aren’t life-threatening.

A tennis shoe sat on the ground next to the blue-framed bike as investigators photographed the scene. The bike’s tail light was still blinking.
