Ralston Avenue in Belmont was shut down Tuesday morning after a female bicyclist was hit by a car at about 8:30 a.m.

The cyclist’s condition is unknown at this time, however Belmont Police Lt. Pat Halleran did state that the accident was not life threatening.

Westbound and eastbound of Ralston Avenue were shut down while the police and injured woman were waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

In an unfortunate turn of events, a woman in a blue car was turning east onto Ralston from Avon and pulled right in front of the ambulance that was coming for the injured cyclist. This woman did suffer a laceration from the hit and was immediately helped by the paramedics.

CHP was called to the scene soon after to assist with both accidents while the Belmont Police investigated the first.

Ralston Avenue has once again been opened up to traffic after an hour and a half delay from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
