A male bicyclist was struck early Tuesday morning in a collision with a pickup truck at a Commerce City intersection, police said.
The bicycle rider was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, said a news release by Commerce City police.
A four-door pickup truck was going southbound on U.S. 85 around 4:22 a.m. when it struck the bicyclist going east through the East 69th Avenue intersection.
It was the second serious accident involving a bicycle in the Denver metro area this week.
