ST. CLOUD — A bicyclist was hurt after being hit by an SUV Thursday evening.
St. Cloud Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says the incident happened shortly before 7:00 p.m. in the 3900 block of Division Street West in St. Cloud.
Authorities say 25-year-old Robert Weber of St. Cloud was trying to cross Division Street West on his bike, when he was struck by an SUV. Weber was not crossing in a crosswalk or at an intersection.
The driver of the SUV, 44-year-old Gina Braswell of Sauk Rapids was driving east on Divison Street, approaching Highway 15, and had a green light.

Weber was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Braswell was not hurt.
