Bicyclist in serious condition after colliding with light-rail train

A bicyclist is in serious condition at an area hospital after colliding with a light-rail train Saturday evening near the Meadowview station, Sacramento Regional Transit reports.

The bicyclist ignored the train’s lights and bells before riding in front of the train just south of the station about 5:15 p.m., said Norm Leong, Regional Transit security chief. The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive from his injuries, Leong said.
