Bicyclist flown to Seattle hospital after collision

SHINE — A man from Western New York State was listed in satisfactory condition Friday morning at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after he was hit by a car on Thursday following his failure to yield at an intersection, according to the State Patrol.

A bicycle ridden by Charles E. Culbertson, 72, Pittsford, New York was southbound on Paradise Bay Road at state Highway 104 at about 4:25 p.m. Thursday, the State Patrol memo said.

A 2006 Toyota Sienna driven by Eric K. McGlone, 43, Arlington was eastbound on state Highway 104 at Paradise Bay Road.

Culbertson’s bicycle entered the southbound lane of state Highway 104 and was struck by the Toyota Sienna, the memo said.

Culbertson, who was wearing a helmet, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.

McGlone was not injured. It was unknown if he was wearing a seatbelt.

Drugs or alcohol were not involved, the memo said.

The Toyota sustained non-reportable damage.

The memo listed the cause as “failure to yield at a signed intersection” but did not indicate whether Culbertson was cited.
