Newport police say that a male bicycle rider was headed over the bridge Tuesday afternoon on the sidewalk when he suffered a seizure. Police say he fell to the pavement right in front of traffic which miraculously somehow all swerved around him. Medics rushed him to PCH and later to the Corvallis Trauma Center. His condition was not immediately released.
Newport Police say the fall was serious but he was wearing a helmet at the time and was appropriately attired with riding gear.
