A cyclist was hospitalized with minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle on Sunday Morning. 

Chula Vista police said this was caused by miscommunication about sharing the same road. At around 7 a.m, the cyclist was riding south on Bay Boulevard near H Street in the middle of the traffic lane when a Toyota Camry collided with him from behind. 

Debris from the most recent storm cluttered the bike lane on Bay Boulevard according to police Lt. Scott Adkins. The driver attempted to pass the cyclist, and in that attempt, the collision occurred. 

The cyclist was hospitalized as a precaution. A street sweeper was scheduled to clear the blocked bike lane.
