A big rig truck hit a bicyclist and dragged him about 20 feet in the Talmadge area Friday morning.

The cyclist was trapped under the truck and has since been transported to a local hospital. The extent of the rider's injuries is unknown at this time.

The intersection of Fairmont and Orange Avenue is blocked off, while police investigate the accident. Drivers are asked to avoid the area and use an alternate route.

Meanwhile in National City, a multi-injury accident is blocking three lanes on northbound Interstate 805 at Plaza Blvd. Traffic is backed up for about a mile. Drivers can take northbound Interstate 5 as an alternate route.  People who were injured are being transported to local hospitals.
