CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A female cyclist is recovering after being hit by a truck while riding her bike just before 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 6700 block of Everhart.

According to police, the woman was riding in the southbound lane of Everhart when a truck exiting an apartment complex struck her from behind.

"There were no injuries on the bicyclist, and minor damage on the vehicle," said Officer Javier Cantu of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "The vehicle is going to get impounded because of no insurance."

Police said the man driving the truck did not receive a ticket because the cyclist did not have a rear reflector. The woman is reportedly okay and was taken home by EMS crews.
