SAN DIEGO — A cyclist was seriously injured when he rode through a red light in the Fairmont Village neighborhood and was hit by a car, police said.

The 35-year-old man was riding his bicycle west in the 4500 block of University Avenue, crossed into the intersection with Chamoune Avenue shortly before 8:30 a.m. Thursday and was struck by a southbound 1996 Volvo driven by a 33-year-old woman, San Diego police Officer Frank Cali said.

The rider was taken to a hospital to be treated for two fractured ankles and a possible brain bleed, Cali said. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

      He received a serious injury. Isn’t that enough?

      A motorist violated CVC 21804 and caused a collision with me almost a year ago. I had video of the incident from a helmet camera. The police report acknowledged that the primary cause of the accident was the motorist violating CVC 21804. The driver was still not cited.
