Bicyclist hospitalized after being hit by tow truck in Crescent Springs



A bicyclist was taken to a hospital Tuesday after being hit by a tow truck in Crescent Springs, police said.


According to the Villa Hills Police Department, the incident took place around 10:51 a.m. on Edenderry Drive near the intersection with Clareglen Drive.


Police said their early investigation indicates the bicyclist, identified as Timothy Kramer, 54, failed to stop at a stop sign at Clareglen Drive at the same time a 24-year-old driver of a Smith's Towing and Recovery wrecker began turning left onto Edenderry Drive. The bicyclist then hit the right side of the wrecker, police said.


Villa Hills police said the bicyclist was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for the treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries. The driver of the tow truck was not injured.


Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Sgt. Matthew Hall or Detective Emily Horseman at 859-341-3535.

According to another news account, Villa Hills Police Department Chief Bryan Allen, reported that, the cyclist was riding a bicycle downhill, "The bike didn't have any brakes," said the chief. "He was going pretty fast." Usually it's a tow truck with no brakes ... pretty ironic right?
