A bicyclist suffered major injuries Friday after he lost control and went over the handlebars while not wearing a helmet, Santa Cruz police said.
The crash occurred just before 8 p.m. on Walnut Avenue at California Street. The bicyclist was riding south on Walnut Avenue when he lost control and went over his handlebars, hitting the road, police said.
While there was a truck that turned west on to California from northbound Walnut just before the accident, it did not hit the bicycle. The bicyclist was not wearing a helmet and did not have a light.
He suffered major injuries and was flown to an out-of-county trauma center, police said.
Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact police at (831) 420-5862.
