Cambridge Police report that a driver turning left onto Mason Street from Brattle Street slammed into a bicyclist around 8:54 a.m. yesterday.
The bicyclist hit the front of the vehicle and landed on the hood of the vehicle. The bicyclist suffered injuries to their left shoulder, and scrapes on their legs. The bicyclist was transported to the hospital for further evaluation. The motorist was issued a citation, and a crash report was taken.
That crash happened just 11 minutes after police also had to return to a less injuring crash at Brattle and Appleton streets, where a bicyclist apparently ran a stop sign and right into the driver's side door of a car. The bicyclist suffered facial injuries but declined medical attention, police say, adding officers issued no citations.
