A young wo­man’s arms and legs were left bro­ken Satur­day af­ter a car struck her as she rode her bi­cy­cle in Clo­vis.

The wo­man, who ap­peared to be in her early 20s, was rid­ing her bike west on Sierra Av­enue on the north side­walk and crossed into Wil­low Av­enue traf­fic even though the light was red, ac­cord­ing to Clo­vis Po­lice Sgt. Craig Aranas.

Aranas said the wo­man was then struck by a north­bound car on Wil­low Av­enue around 7:22 a.m.

Wit­nesses to the ac­ci­dent told po­lice that the traf­fic light was green for the car. The driver stopped and co­op­er­ated with po­lice. It does not ap­pear he was at fault, Aranas said.

The wo­man was taken to Com­mu­nity Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Be­sides her bro­ken bones, she also had abra­sions to her face, but she was ex­pected to sur­vive her in­juries, Aranas said. Her name was not pro­vided.
