A 48-year-old Belfair man was arrested Saturday in Shelton for striking a bicyclist with his vehicle and then flipping the vehicle into a creek, according to a news release from the Shelton Police Department.
The man was attempting to turn right from South First Street onto Park Street just after 6 p.m. when he collided with a bicyclist. He then flipped his car into Goldsborough Creek.
He was able to extricate himself from the vehicle before police arrived, the release says, and was booked into Mason County Jail on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicants. He was not injured in the crash.
The bicyclist, a 25-year-old woman, was taken to Mason General Hospital to have minor injuries treated. She was not wearing a helmet.
Anyone with further information about the incident is asked to call Shelton Police at 360-426-4441.
