A bicyclist was taken to the hospital this afternoon after a crash with a car at Beacon and Charles Street at the edge of Boston Common.
The crash happened at about 12:30 p.m., said Officer James Kenneally, a Boston Police spokesman. The bicyclist was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital. No information was immediately available on the severity of the victim's injuries.
Meanwhile, the MBTA today identified the victim in a fatal bicycle crash involving a bus Wednesday as Michael Hunt, 22, of Mission Hill.
Authorities have said Hunt was killed after he tried to pass a bus and lost control of his bike. The accident happened as Hunt was riding east on Huntington Avenue near the South Huntington Avenue split at about 6 p.m.
Hunt was trying to pass a Route 39 bus on the left, but fell under the moving bus, authorities said. He was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver was a 29-year-old man with about two years of experience driving for the T, officials said. He was taken to a hospital to be treated for stress.
