A bicyclist struck by a car early Monday traveled through a red light moments before the crash, officials said.
The incident happened at Fairmount and Home avenues, east of Interstate 805 and north of State Route 94.
At around 12:15 a.m. the bicyclist went through a red light and was hit by the driver of a white sedan, according to San Diego Police.
The sedan’s windshield was shattered when the cyclist’s head hit the glass.
San Diego Fire-Rescue officials say the cyclist was transported to UCSD in Hillcrest in critical condition.
A police officer who went to the hospital with the victim said he has minor injuries to his head and no broken bones.
The driver stayed at the scene and was not cited, officials said.
