MCMINNVILLE, Ore. (AP) - A 37-year-old bicyclist has been critically injured in a crash on Highway 47 north of McMinnville.

Oregon State Police says Joseph Bowerman of Lafayette was taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland with life threatening injuries after Friday morning’s crash.

Troopers say a preliminary investigation shows a Dodge Ram pickup truck pulling a utility trailer was heading southbound on Highway 99W when the cyclist entered the southbound lanes. The truck swerved into the southbound guardrail to try to avoid the bicyclist but ultimately hit him.

State police are asking those who witnessed the crash to contact troopers.
