Cyclist injured on freeway ramp

A cyclist was taken by ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital Wednesday night after crashing into equipment on a closed San Bruno freeway on-ramp.

California Highway Patrol officers searched for more than an hour for the cyclist after a caller reported that the cyclist had gashed open their head when they collided with equipment around 9 p.m. on the closed Sleath Lane on-ramp to Interstate-280, according to CHP dispatch Officer Tom Stewart.

The cyclist eluded the officers by fleeing into bushes that lined a nearby golf driving range, according to Stewart.
