Collision injures cyclist in State College

A cyclist was taken to the hospital after colliding with a car early Thursday evening.

According to State College police, Mitchell Seltzer, 20, of Willow Grove, was traveling east on his bicycle along B Alley at about 5 p.m. Thursday when he entered the intersection with East Nittany Avenue without stopping.

Joel Luckenbaugh, 20, of New Oxford, was driving north along East Nittany when he was struck by Seltzer, police said. Seltzer was taken by ambulance from the scene for a possible broken collarbone — Luckenbaugh was uninjured.

Luckenbaugh’s car sustained dents, scratches and a broken passenger side mirror, police said. Seltzer’s bicycle’s wheel was bent, along with “other damage.”
