Bicyclist injured in crash Wednesday at Rick’s Bar

FARGO – A bicyclist was injured Wednesday night after being struck by a vehicle as he left the parking lot of Rick's Bar in Fargo.

Karl Hanson, 40, Fargo, was struck by a vehicle headed west on Main Avenue about 11 p.m., Fargo police Sgt. Mark Lykken said.

“The vehicle tried to avoid him, but couldn't,” Lykken said.

Authorities have not been able to interview the bicyclist. The driver of the vehicle is not suspected of driving under the influence, Lykken said. Hanson was transported to MeritCare with what authorities believe to be non-life threatening injuries.

No arrests were made in connection with the incident, which is still under investigation.
