Manhattan, KAN. (WIBW) -- A Manhattan woman is in the hospital after police say she was hit by a car during her morning bike ride.

It happened Monday morning around 6:20 in the 2800 block of Kimball Avenue.

Police say 50-year-old Tae Wyman was riding her bike eastbound in the center of the lane when a 2001 KIA Sorrento came up from behind her and hit her. Wyman was thrown onto the hood of the car and onto the ground, according to officials. She was rushed to Mercy Regional Health Center in Manhattan and then airlifted to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka with a head injury.

The driver of the car that hit her said he did not see Wyman in the conditions because it was foggy and still dark out at the time. Police say she was not wearing any reflective gear nor were any reflective items on her bicycle that could be seen from behind and she was riding in the middle of the road. The driver, they say, was not speeding at the time of the accident.

At last check, Riley County officials say Wyman was listed in stable condition.
