A rider on a motorized bicycle reportedly ran into a pickup truck Friday afternoon in the 300 block of North Montezuma Street and was flown by medical helicopter to J.C. Lincoln Hospital North in Phoenix for treatment, according to Prescott Police Department Sgt. Kevin Perlak. The extent of the man's injuries was not known Friday.

The driver of the truck was not hurt, Perlak said.

The collision, which occurred at 4:57 p.m., closed the southbound lanes on Montezuma for about 30 minutes, Perlak said. Both the bicyclist and pickup driver were headed south on Montezuma. The accident is under investigation.
