A bicyclist suffered moderate head injuries when he collided with a car in Isla Vista late Monday morning, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

A sedan that was heading toward the UC Santa Barbara campus hit a young man biking through the intersection of El Colegio Road and Embarcadero del Norte at around 11:15 a.m., fire spokesman Mike Eliason said.

The driver had had the green light and was traveling at normal speeds, and wasn’t injured in the collision, Eliason said. 

Though the bicyclist suffered moderate injuries, he was upright and talking by the time the Fire Department and paramedics arrived to examine him, Eliason said.

The man hadn’t been wearing a helmet.

He was subsequently transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

The accident is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
