VERNON – A 37-year-old Coldstream man is nursing deep bruises, cuts and road rash after he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle near Polson Mall Wednesday afternoon.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance.
There was about $500 damage to the hood of the car, but an estimated $5,000 worth of damage to the carbon fiber triathlon bike.
