ALLEGAN—A bicyclist involved in a crash with a truck was reported to have only minor injuries. The incident happened on M-40, south of Allegan, Friday, Sept. 28, at 4:22 p.m.

The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office said the bicyclist, a 57-year-old Allegan resident, was brushed slightly by the truck and did fall over, but was not seriously injured.

The truck in the photo, driven by a 29-year-old man from Coldwater, did not see a passenger van ahead, driven by a 31-year-old Hopkins man, which was slowing down for the bicyclist. The truck rear-ended the van then left the roadway and bumped the bicyclist.

After emergency responders arrived to the bicycle/truck/ van crash near The Grill House restaurant, the highway backed up with traffic in both directions.

The truck driver was cited for failing to stop in an assured distance.
