Medina bicyclist hit by car in fair condition

MEDINA — A 39-year-old Medina man was seriously injured when a car collided with his bicycle Tuesday afternoon in the 700 block of South Court Street.

Joseph Nebelski was taken by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, where a spokeswoman reported him in fair condition this morning.

Shortly before 3 p.m., Nebelski was traveling north in the southbound lane on South Court Street when he turned around to cross the street and cut in front of a car, police Lt. Bob Starcher said.

The car was driven by Roger Eichorst, of Medina. Eichorst was not cited, but the investigation is not complete, Starcher said.
