A cyclist was critically injured after colliding with a vehicle near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
About 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, the 66-year-old cyclist was crossing Wasatch Blvd. (3500 East) to enter the canyon when a northbound Toyota sedan struck him, said Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Mark Askerlund. He suffered obvious head injuries, Askerlund said, though the sergeant was not sure if he had been wearing a helmet.
The man was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in an ambulance in critical condition.
