A bicyclist was found unconscious in the roadway near the intersection of State Street and Arterial East in Auburn Sunday night, according to the Auburn fire and police departments.
The cyclist, a 64-year-old Auburn man, was discovered in the northbound lane on State Street in front of Savannah Bank by a passerby at around 11 p.m., police said. First responders determined the man was not hit by a car, however it is unclear what caused him to fall off his bike.
A helicopter was initially called in to transport the man, the fire department said, but never made it to the scene as it was unable to take off due to mechanical issues. The cyclist was transported to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse by TLC Ambulance where he is being treated for head and facial injuries.
