BELOIT (WREX) -

A woman is in serious condition at a local hospital on Friday after a bicyclist hit her while she was walking on the sidewalk.

Police say the 58-year-old woman was leaving a business on the 300 block of State Street around 1 p.m. when an 18-year-old riding his bicycle on the sidewalk hit her. The woman, who isn't identified at this time, fell and hit her head.

The 18-year-old man has not been charged with a crime but the investigation is ongoing.

Beloit Police reminds residents that bicycling on the sidewalk is against a municipal ordinance and no one should bike on a public sidewalk unless it's designated as a bicycle way.
