Section of Metcalf Avenue closed after bicyclist is struck

A crash has closed a section of northbound Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park.

Metcalf is closed from 129th Street to 130th Street, according to Overland Park police. Department spokesman John Lacy said an 80-year-old man on a bicycle was struck when he swerved into the path of a pickup truck.

The man was unresponsive when emergency personnel arrived on scene, but he was able to communicate at the hospital, Lacy said.

Still, Lacy added it is unclear if he will survive.
