Garden City police said they responded to an accident involving a cyclist and a car at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Chinden Boulevard and Maple Grove.

Cyclist Zheng Kang, 20, of Garden City, was hit by a Toyota Camry driven by Melissa Ramaker, 35, of Boise, police said.

Based on evidence and witnesses' reports, police believe Kang was crossing Chinden heading north through westbound traffic and rode into the car's path.

Kang was transported to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. He was responsive and alert at the accident scene, and has since been released from the hospital.

The collision caused rush-hour traffic delays of 30 minutes, police said.

No citations or arrests have been made. Garden City police said that alcohol was not thought to be a factor in the crash.

Witnesses are encouraged to call police at 472-2950.
