Victoria police investigate a Wednesday afternoon auto-bicycle wreck at the intersection of Brazos and Laurent streets that left one man injured.

A bicyclist was injured after being struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Brazos and Laurent streets on Wednesday afternoon.

About 12:30 p.m., a bicyclist was stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Laurent Street and the 1200 block of Brazos Street, while a red Mazda Protégé was stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Laurent Street and the 1300 block of Brazos Street.

When the Mazda attempted to pull out to make a left turn onto Laurent Street, it struck the bicyclist, who had already made a right turn onto Laurent Street, said Victoria police officer Travis Hanson.

The bicyclist, 55-year-old Victorian David Hill, was not wearing a helmet, said Hanson.

Hill was taken via ambulance to Citizens Medical Center.

As of Wednesday afternoon, he was in stable condition.

The Mazda's driver, 39-year-old Cirilido Garza, and his passenger, 14-year-old Maria Garza, both of Victoria, were uninjured.

The Mazda's driver was issued a citation for failure to yield the right of way while turning left, said Hanson.
