A bicyclist suffered severe injuries to his face following an accident on 17th and Yuma streets at about 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Andre Payne, 24, Manhattan, was driving his 1999 Lincoln Town Car westbound on Yuma Street, when he attempted to make a left turn at south 17th Street and struck bicyclist Kyle Gach, 24, Manhattan.

Riley County EMS transported Gach to Mercy Regional Health Center for several severe cuts to his face, Kyle said.

Officers cited Payne for failure to yield with right-of-way while making a left-turn.
