Pickup strikes two bicyclists in Depew, critically injuring one

Two bicyclists were injured Tuesday after they were struck by a pickup while crossing Dick Road at George Urban Boulevard, Depew Police said.

The bicyclists, both men, ages 27 and 25, were struck while traveling in the left turn lane just north of George Urban Boulevard when the accident occurred at about 3:23 p.m., according to authorities.

Police had not yet released the names of the bicyclists.

Both were transported by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center. The 27-year-old man was listed in critical condition and the 25-year-old was in stable condition, according to authorities.

The operator of the truck was not injured in the collision, but did volunteer to be taken to ECMC to be tested for drugs and alcohol, authorities said.

Neither was suspected late Tuesday of having played a role in the accident, police said.

The accident remained under investigation.
