    One person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after a bike and car collided near SeaWorld San Diego, San Diego Police (SDPD) said. 

    The collision happened at approximately 7:55 p.m. Sunday when police responded to the crash on SeaWorld Drive and Friars Road, near SeaWorld San Diego, police said. 

    The crash happened when a driver in a white Corolla was heading west on SeaWorld Drive, approaching the intersection between SeaWorld Drive and Friars, said SDPD Sargeant Johnson. 

    A woman riding a bicycle on the wrong side of the road in a dedicated bicycle lane on Friars failed to stop at a red traffic signal and drove through the intersection when the car struck her, Johnson said. He does not think the driver saw her, he said. 

    The car was driving 45 miles per hour in a 50 miles per hour zone on SeaWorld Drive, police said. 

    Medics got to the scene of the crash shortly after it happened and resuscitated the bicyclist three times. She sustained blunt cardiac trauma, police said. She was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries and is in surgery. The bicyclist did not have identification on her and is listed as Jane Doe. 

    There were no signs the driver was intoxicated, Johnson said. At this time, the driver is not facing charges and police are calling the crash an accident, Johnson said. 

    Part of Friars and SeaWorld Drive was shut down as authorities investigate the crash, police confirmed. Friars Road was shut down at Napa and SeaWorld Drive was down near Friars. 

    No further details were immediately available.
