Bicyclist Hits Man Marching In Pittsburgh Parade

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Police say a bicyclist ignored barricades set up for Pittsburgh’s Columbus Day Parade and struck a man who was marching.

Police say 56-year- old Giovanni Cimino was knocked to the ground Saturday while he was handing out fliers to parade watchers and was briefly unconscious. He was taken to the hospital with a head injury.

His wife, Karen Cimino, tells the Pittsburgh Tribune- Review that her husband was being kept at the hospital overnight so doctors could perform tests. She says he was confused and needed stitches.

Police say the cyclist faces charges.
