Two bicyclists were seriously injured Sunday morning in a collision with a car in Waxhaw, police said.
The crash was reported about 10:30 a.m. on Waxhaw-Marvin Road at Exbury Gardens Drive, according to Waxhaw police. That is south of Kensington Drive, about 2 miles west of Providence Road.
Investigators said the cyclists – a 58-year-old man from Hickory and his 56-year-old brother from Charlotte – were northbound on Waxhaw-Marvin Road. They collided with a southbound 2007 Infiniti driven by a 17-year-old Waxhaw man.
Police allege the driver of the Infiniti was making a left turn from Waxhaw-Marvin Road onto Exbury Gardens Drive and turned into the path of the cyclists. The driver told police he did not see the cyclists until the crash, according to the collision report.
