A 50-year-old Lodi resident had severe head injuries after his bicycle and a car collided at the intersection of Harney Lane and Hutchins Street on Monday morning.

The police are not yet releasing the name of the bicyclist because of the severity of his injuries, Lodi Police Lt. Fernando Martinez said.

At 6:30 a.m., the car was going eastbound on Harney and the bicyclist was going southbound on Hutchins when one of the two ran a red light, Martinez said. Officers are still contacting witnesses to find out what happened.

An ambulance took the bicyclist to the intensive care unit at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento.

    Side note: Had some teen girl in an orange bug blow through once, not even on an "almost made the light" running. Cross traffic had just cleared for my left turn and she blew through. I was on my motorcycle and so was paying extra attention for such things but still had to braked hard. In my car I may have been in her lane by time she flew through.

    I know what you mean Jerry. I go through this intersection with non motorized transportation all the time. More than once a car or two or three run a red. Also see fellow cyclist shoot the gap in cross traffic so they don't have to stop. The intersection needs better enforcement. A prime candidate for the red light cameras I like so much.

    Please update this as soon as you can. I have several friends who routinely ride West Lane/Hutchins Rd. to work. It is a bicycle route. How awful for everyone. Let's hope for the best.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
