Two bicyclists were injured when they were struck by a car in Sandwich on Saturday, August 17.

Police were called to Main Street at 4:07 PM when it was reported that a car had struck a pedestrian. Police discovered that a pedestrian had not been struck, but that the two bikers had.

The bikers, a 19-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man who are both from New York, had injuries that were not considered life-threatening. The woman was transported to Cape Cod Hospital and was treated for a compression fracture. She has since been discharged from the hospital.

The man was treated at the scene for a minor wrist injury and back pain. He was able to take himself to the hospital for further treatment of his injuries and he has also been discharged.

Police said that the 64-year-old Sandwich man who was driving the car stayed at the scene and has been cited for the crash. He told police that he had been driving on Main Street and saw the woman “topple over in front of me.”

Police said that he will be summoned to court on charges of negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to slow for a bicycle, and a marked lanes violation.
