TAMPA — A man riding a motorized bicycle was in critical condition Sunday after he was hit by a car, according to Tampa Police.

The man, who was not immediately identified, was struck while attempting to cross the intersection of W Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and N Himes Avenue around 6 p.m. Sunday. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he was in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, said Tampa police Lt. Ricardo Ubinas.

The investigation is ongoing, but it appears the bicyclist might tried to cross without waiting for the traffic control signal to change, Ubinas said.
