First Published Oct 24 2013 09:07 am • Last Updated Oct 24 2013 01:23 pm

A North Logan bicyclist was in serious condition Thursday, the day after he was hit by a car while pedaling against the flow of traffic in Highway 91.

North Park Police Chief Kim Hawkes, whose department serves North Logan and neighboring Hyde Park, said the 24-year-old man was conscious and talking when officers visited him at Logan Regional Hospital.

"He has a lot of injuries to his lower extremities and likely has some surgery ahead of him," Hawkes said, noting the man had multiple broken bones in his left leg as well as right knee damage.

It took emergency workers 30 minutes to retrieve the man from underneath a Chevrolet Malibu after he was struck about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on the highway near 2415 North.

The man was riding southbound along the highway between the fog line and the curb, against oncoming northbound traffic. The Malibu’s 26-year-old female driver pulled out of a business driveway, not seeing the bicycle, and struck the rider.

Hawkes said the investigation is continuing, but no citations had been issued as of Thursday.
