Sad and horrible news about a badly injured bicyclist in Connecticut.

My husband was an avid cyclist for many years. He was hit by a car, but thankfully not badly injured. He continued to cycle for quite awhile after that, much to my dismay. It was a happy day for me when he decided to stop doing it on a daily basis.

With that said, stories like this one are why my heart was in my stomach every day he headed out to ride.

A report from fox61.com a bicyclist was seriously hurt after an accident with a vehicle in Farmington, Connecticut last night. Farmington police say they are investigating after a vehicle hit the unidentified bicyclist at an intersection in the town. The driver of the car wasn't injured. Police say the cyclist did suffer life threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital.

Police are reaching out and asking if anyone has any information on this accident, you contact Farmington Police Detective Hughes at 860-675-2461.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with the injured cyclist.
