La Salle cyclist hospitalized after getting hit by an SUV

Posted by wlpo on June 21, 2016

Riding a bike on Route 251 isn’t the best idea. Sixty-year-old Harve Smalls of La Salle found out the hard way Monday afternoon.

Smalls was riding against the flow of traffic on the shoulder of northbound Route 251 when he was hit by an SUV driven by 45-year-old Barbara Armstrong also of La Salle. Armstrong was trying to turn onto Route 251 from 38th Street.

Smalls was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital in Peru. Nobody was ticketed.
