Timothy D. Presnar, 53, of Lima, was treated for minor scrapes Sunday by Macochee EMS personnel at the scene of a crash where his bicycle struck a sport utility vehicle during an organized bicycle race.
Troopers of the Marysville Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol report Jeffrey Kauffman, 64, of Bellefontaine, was operating a northbound SUV on Township Road 55 near County Road 1 when he stopped in the roadway. Then a southbound bicycle operated by Mr. Presnar reportedly lost control and went left of center and turned over on its side, striking the SUV.
Mr. Kauffman and his passenger did not report any injuries. The bicyclist was not transported from the scene.
No citations were issued.
