Semi/bicycle crash in Henderson County, Ill.

A Wayland, Iowa man was ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident after his semi hit a bicyclist's handlebar.

Police say Cory Jones, 44, was driving his truck-tractor when he realized there was a bicycle in front of him.

According to an ISP news release, Jones turned abruptly to head into a ditch, but the left side of his livestock trailer hit the bike's right handlebar.

Bicyclist Stutzman Felty, 30, of Smithshire, Illinois, crashed and was taken to a Monmouth hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
