The minivan had also been preparing to cross the intersection and was pushed into the cyclists’ path when it was hit by another vehicle.

The husband suffered head trauma and is listed in critical condition. His wife suffered moderate injuries and is listed in stable condition.

Both were wearing helmets. The sheriff’s department is investigating the incident.
