A man on a bike was injured on 40th and Locust streets Saturday morning, apparently from a collision with a car. 

Around 9:50 a.m., a Daily Pennsylvanian reporter saw the man on the road in front of Saxbys with his bike underneath him. The man was visibly upset, yelling that he couldn't stand up and that he'd been hit by a car. 

One police officer was blocking off the road in front of him with his vehicle. 

A second police car and an ambulance arrived, and the paramedic came out and moved the bike out from under him. 

Penn's Division of Public Safety did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
