A Connecticut man was airlifted to a local hospital Sunday morning after a bicycle crash on Hilton Head Island.
The 36-year-old man sustained serious injuries in the crash on Palmetto Bay road shortly after 7 a.m., South Carolina Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones said Sunday evening.
The man, who was not wearing a helmet, was airlifted to Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for treatment.
The man rode a bike out into the roadway, heading south from a private driveway and pulled out in front of a van that was heading west on U.S. 278, Jones said. None of the four occupants of the van — coincidentally also from Connecticut — was injured in the crash.
No criminal charges or traffic citations have been made and none are pending in connection with this collision investigation, Jones said.
