The bicyclist, who was thrown from his bicycle, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition. Neither the driver of the Yaris, a 49-year-old Pearl City man, nor his passenger, a 45-year-old Kaneohe woman, was injured.

It is not known if alcohol, drugs or speed were a factor in the crash.
The intersection was shut down for several hours as traffic officers investigated the scene.
