A female bicyclist appeared to suffer minor injuries after a collision with a car on Wednesday morning near downtown.

The incident occurred around 9:30 a.m. at the crosswalk of Cheltenham Drive and Wisconsin Avenue and involved a Mercedes SUV. Rescue Services and MCPD were on the scene attending to the injured bicyclist, who was put into an ambulance.

A witness said the bicyclist didn’t appear to be badly hurt and lifted herself onto a gurney.

An August report from CountyStat said there were eight reported bicycle collisions in 2011 in downtown Bethesda, most involving cars at crosswalks.
