ALHAMBRA — An Alhambra man suffered major injuries Saturday when he was struck by a car while riding his bicycle, officials said.
The 44-year-old man was hospitalized in critical condition following the collision, which took place about 12:45 p.m. at Palm Avenue and Main Street, Alhambra police Lt. Jennifer Wiese said.
