Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


6:32 p.m. A 58-year-old Seattle man was bicycling along Madison Avenue south of Wallace Way when he was hit by a 45-year-old Bainbridge man in a 2005 Dodge Ram who pulled out onto Madison and hit the cyclist while he was in the bike lane.

Police could not find any marks on the truck that indicated the man had been hit. The driver said he had looked both ways and pulled out slowly but did not see the man on the bike in the rain.

The driver was cited for failing to yield the right of way.
