A cyclist was injured in a collision involving the cyclist and a car Tuesday morning, shortly after 6:30 a.m.

A cyclist was hospitalized early Tuesday morning after a collision with a car near the intersection of Fair Oaks Avenue and Woodbury Road, according to Inspector Quvondo Johnson.

The accident was reported at 6:37 a.m. and by 6:54 a.m. paramedics from the Fire Department's nearby Station 12 had responded to the scene and prepared the cyclist for transport to Huntington Hospital, according to Johnson.

Johnson did not have any further information on how the accident happened or the extent of the cyclist's injuries.

Patch will update this story with more information if it becomes available.

Almost 20 minutes for the paramedics to go a few blocks? That seems a little unreasonable considering the station was so close by. I think they could have walked there faster. I hope this cyclist wasn't in too much pain waiting for help to arrive.

Never mind, it looks like the article says they arrived, treated and preped the cyclist to move, all within 20 minutes. My apologies and good job!

You got it AJ - by 6:54 a.m. they were sending the ambulance on its way.
