Bicyclist Seriously Injured In Collision With Truck

A 54-year-old Jackson resident received multiple injuries when he was struck by the rearview mirror of a delivery truck while biking on Highway 26/89/191 on Wednesday morning. The delivery truck and the bicyclist were both northbound on the highway when the accident occurred approximately one mile north of Airport Junction. The cyclist was wearing a bike helmet. After making contact with the bicyclist, the driver of the truck quickly stopped and made a 911 call on his cell phone to summon help. A ranger was soon onsite and provided emergency medical care. The bicyclist was then taken by park ambulance to St. John's Medical Center in Jackson. Further details about this incident will be available at the conclusion of an accident investigation.
