An air ambulance was called Monday afternoon to Furys Ferry Road just across the South Carolina state line after a bicyclist was struck by a vehicle.

The adult male bicyclist, whose name has not yet been released, was awake and talking to emergency responders when he was stabilized on the roadside by Gold Cross EMS and Columbia County Fire Rescue workers, along with responders from McCormick County.

The man was struck just after 3 p.m. by a passing truck. A motorist behind the driver of the truck said a few vehicles passed the cyclist before the truck hit him.

The collision remains under investigation.
