BELMONT -- Police are seeking witnesses to a crash that occurred Sunday afternoon between a bicyclist and pedestrian.

Police responded about 1:50 p.m. to reports of a downed bicyclist at the intersection of Ralston Avenue and Davis Drive, Capt. Pat Halleran said. Upon arrival, officers discovered the cyclist crashed into a pedestrian while pedaling east on Ralston Avenue.

The bicyclist, a 62-year-old San Francisco man, was treated at the scene, Halleran said. The pedestrian, a 66-year-old Belmont woman who was preparing to cross Ralston Avenue with her husband, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries from which she is expected to survive.

Authorities said the bicyclist appears to have hit the woman as she stepped off the curb at the southwest corner of the intersection. It was not immediately known whether the cyclist or the pedestrian was crossing the intersection against the light.

Investigators are continuing to investigate the incident, and are searching for any witnesses who may have witnessed it, Halleran said. Anyone with information is asked to call Belmont Police at 650-595-7400.
