Vehicle vs Bicyclist Accident Attributed to the Sun

A driver blinded by the sun did not see a bicyclist along the road. A CHP spokesperson says a 61 year old man was making a turn from Ridge Road on to Canyon View Drive Friday afternoon when he says he was blinded by the sun in his eyes. He turned his 1994 Dodge pickup into the path of a bicyclist. The 54 year old bicyclist was taken to Sierra Nevada Hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries. The CHP is continuing their investigation into the accident.
