SANTA CRUZ, Calif. —
A 95-year-old driver struck a bicyclist in Santa Cruz on Saturday afternoon.
The elderly woman was apparently making a right turn into a driveway in the 400 block of Walnut Street when she collided with a bicyclist at around 1 p.m., according to Santa Cruz police.
A preliminary investigation revealed the driver accelerated instead of applying the brakes and struck the bicyclist, a tree and a parked car before coming to rest against a garage, police said.
The bicyclist, a 25-year-old woman, suffered serious injuries to her pelvis and legs, police said.
She was airlifted to Valley Medical Center and reported to be in stable condition.
There was no indication that drugs or alcohol were involved.
The driver has been referred to the Department of Motor Vehicles for reexamination, police said.
