A 60-year-old bike rider survived a potential serious injury after a collision with a car Tuesday morning.

Kennewick Police were called to an area near N. Zinser and West Clearwater after getting a report the man was struck.

 WAS THE RIDER THROWN OFF HIS BIKE?

We don't know if the man was thrown off the bike, sometimes in these collisions, the rider is blasted a number of feet by the impact.

However, at the scene, the man was conscious and did not appear to have any serious injuries when triaged by Kennewick EMS. He was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation, and the driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with Officers.

No word if any charges pending.
