The bicyclist involved in a traffic collision in West Berkeley on Wednesday morning is in “critical, but stable” condition, according to Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Officer Byron White.

According to White, officers responded to the intersection of Cedar and Ninth streets at 7:16 a.m. Wednesday after a bicyclist was struck by a pickup truck driving east on Cedar Street. The bicyclist — a 58-year-old Albany man — was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

White added that the 30-year-old Berkeley driver remained on the scene and is cooperating with investigators.

After the collision, BPD closed Cedar Street between Eighth and Tenth streets, and Ninth Street between Jones and Virginia streets, issuing a Nixle alert cautioning the community to avoid the area.

White said in the email that the “severity of the collision” prompted the involvement of BPD’s Fatal Accident Investigation Team. At 11:42 a.m., a second Nixle alert was released informing the public that roads are again open.
