No charges likely after car hits Warwick cyclist

No charges likely after car hits Warwick cyclist

Warwick police say no charges are likely to be filed over an accident involving a car and a bicycle that left the 63-year-old cyclist seriously injured.

Authorities on Monday identified the cyclist as Joseph Izzo of Warwick. They say he suffered serious injuries and is in intensive care at Rhode Island Hospital. The hospital said Monday he is in fair condition.

The accident took place around 10:15 p.m. Friday along Greenwich Avenue. A preliminary investigation found that a 44-year-old Cranston woman was driving northwest when she struck Izzo, who was biking in the right-hand travel lane.

Police say it doesn't appear that speed and alcohol were factors in either party in the accident and that charges aren't likely.

The investigation is ongoing.
