A cyclist is being hospitalized after being struck by a vehicle in Lakewood.

The accident happened around 1:00 PM on Cross Street.

The teen suffered a head injury and is being transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

The impact of the accident left a hole in the windshield. He was wearing a helmet.

Lakewood’s Traffic Safety division is responding to the scene. The road is being partially shut for the investigation.
