Omaha Police are investigating after a bicyclist was struck by an SUV at 42nd and Poppleton over the noon hour Tuesday.

A witness tells Newsradio 1110 KFAB the bicyclist was northbound on 42nd Street and was struck as the driver of the SUV pulled away from the stop sign.

“I seen her pull off from the stop sign, but you know if she would have waited a few more seconds and looked to her right, it could have been prevented. But it was an accident still the same,” says Tommy Vasser.

Vasser says the bicyclist suffered a leg injury and was taken to Nebraska Medical Center.
