FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield cyclist was sent to the hospital Sunday afternoon after he ran into a car at an intersection and flipped over the hood, police said.

The Commerce Drive man, 24, was traveling south on Black Rock Turnpike on the wrong side of the road on the sidewalk around 4 p.m., police said.

He told police he saw the light change outside BJ’s Warehouse Club, but he was traveling too fast to stop and hit a car that was exiting the lot, police said.

The cyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, complained of leg and head pain and was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, police said.

He was given a verbal warning to obey traffic signals.

The car’s driver, a 27-year-old Bridgeport woman, had an expired registration and a suspended license, police said. She was released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 8.
