TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Rural/Metro crews responded to a call of a pedestrian hit on Tucson's northeast side this morning.

RMFD crews from Station 72, near Houghton and Tanque Verde, arrived at the scene near mile post 4.5 to find a bicyclist had collided with a vehicle. 

The rider was transported to University of Arizona Medical Center, according to Rural/Metro officials, for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
