CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A 70-year old man was rushed to the hospital after he crashed his bicycle into a car on Everhart and Middlecoff on the city's southside, at around 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said the cyclist was actually going against traffic, and collided with a vehicle that was pulling out of a shopping center.

"It's almost impossible to see him with those things coming," said Alan Shelton of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "He really shouldn't have been coming down the sidewalk like that. You are actually supposed to drive with traffic on the street."

Police said the cyclist did not appear to be seriously hurt.
