A Windsor cyclist who was hit by a car downtown Thursday night is expected to live but could be charged, police said Sunday.

The 26-year-old was struck after police say he ran a red light. He was in hospital with a serious head injury Friday but the injury was not life-threatening.

Police said the man was struck after crossing at a red light at Wyandotte Street and Ouellette Avenue around 7 p.m. Despite attempts to stop, the cyclist was hit by a vehicle driven by a 51-year-old man.

The cyclist, police say, wasn’t wearing a helmet and had been drinking.

The driver has not been charged.
