Cyclist was hit by some debris from a truck on a morning ride.

Granite from a tractor trailer hit a bicyclist Monday morning. A section of Evens Ave. shut down soon afterward.

The bicyclist was taken by an ambulance and transported to a local hospital. The person was reported to have minor injuries.

Bicycle rides account for 1 percent of all trips in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. But bicyclists face a higher risk of crash-related injuries and deaths than motor vehicle occupants.
