Ketchum police are investigating an injury accident Monday in which a bicyclist and a moving car collided at a busy intersection downtown.

Police spokeswoman Kim Rogers said officers were dispatched just after 5:30 p.m. to an accident at the corner of Main and First streets, adjacent to First Bank of Idaho. Rogers said a Ketchum man, 32-year-old Aaron J. Grabos, sustained "minor injuries" after his Puch bicycle was hit head-on by a 1991 Lexus driven by Hailey resident Peter Stommel.

Rogers said Grabos was struck by the Lexus as he was turning from Main Street onto First Street.

Grabos was transported to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center, where he was treated and released later the same day.

No citations were issued Monday. Rogers said the police department is investigating the incident to determine if either the bicyclist or motorist was at fault. If fault is determined, a citation could be issued, she said.
