    Two bicyclists were hospitalized Saturday after they were struck by a vehicle as they rode along Mission Bay Drive Saturday morning.

    The bicyclists were traveling northbound on 3500 Mission Bay Dr. as a1990 Ford Taurus was traveling southbound on the same street, officials said.

    The Ford’s driver reportedly failed to negotiate the curve and drove into one of the bicyclist, causing the other bicyclist to ride into a light pole.

    One of the victims sustained a fracture of the left lower leg and facial abrasions. The other victim had a complaint of pain, officials said.

    Thought the cause of the accident wasn’t immediately known, officials said alcohol was not a factor.

    Both victims were transported to a local hospital and the driver of the Ford later returned to the scene.
