FARMINGTON — A bicyclist was treated Monday morning at San Juan Regional Medical Center after being struck by a vehicle at Main Street and Auburn Avenue.

A 47-year-old Farmington man was biking west in the crosswalk on Auburn Avenue at about 10:30 a.m. when he was struck by a passenger car turning north onto the avenue from Main Street, according to Farmington police spokeswoman Georgette Allen.

The man was transported to the hospital to be treated for abrasions and complaints about leg pain, Allen said.

The driver of the vehicle — Jeffrey Tolbert, 41, of Farmington — was cited for failing to yield to the right-of-way to the bicyclist, according to Allen.
