A bicyclist was taken to the hospital after he crashed into the back of a van Wednesday in Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.
The cyclist's injuries were not considered life-threatening. Police Lt. Kevin Crim said officers believe the 54-year-old Leavenworth man may have been intoxicated at the time of the accident.
The crash was reported at about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 100 block of Marion Street.
The man was traveling west on a bicycle. He was behind a van.
The driver of the van slowed to turn into a private drive. The cyclist apparently didn't slow down and struck the van, according to Crim.
The bicyclist was transported to Saint John Hospital.
Crim said a person who was traveling on a bicycle cannot charged with driving under the influence. But the person could be charged with being a pedestrian under the influence if he was intoxicated.
The lieutenant said police plan to follow up on the case to try to determine if the cyclist was intoxicated.
