Midtown Sacramento cyclist seriously injured in collision with city garbage truck

A cyclist riding in midtown Sacramento this morning was seriously injured after colliding with a city garbage truck, according to police.

The cyclist, an adult man, was transported to the hospital but is expected to survive, said police Officer Doug Morse.

No crime is suspected in the collision, which Morse described as a "tragic accident."

The collision occurred before 9 a.m. at the intersection of 21st Street and Capitol Avenue, Morse said. The cyclist and the garbage truck were both travelling northbound on 21st Street when the driver attempted to make a left turn onto Capitol Boulevard. The truck and the cyclist then collided.

The cause of the investigation is still under investigation, Morse said.
