The Sandwich Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene of a collision between a pickup truck and a bicyclist around 2:58 PM on Sunday, August 1, in downtown Sandwich, according to a news release.

When officers arrived at the scene, they noted a Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a Scott Freeman, 69, of Sandwich, had struck a bicyclist ridden by Steven Hall, 42, of Plymouth.

Though the bicyclist was alert and conscious when evaluated, he appeared to have sustained minor injuries and was transported to Beth Israel Plymouth by the Sandwich Fire Department, police said.

During an investigation, police determined the bicyclist, traveling west on Route 6A toward Town Neck, was struck by the driver of the Chevrolet Silverado, who was traveling east toward Russell’s Corner. The driver attempted to turn left into the Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot when he collided with the bicyclist, stating he did not see him.

The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado was cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic, police said. He was uninjured.
