A 57-year-old woman is in critical condition after she was hit by a bicyclist Thursday afternoon just north of downtown, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police said a 30-year-old man was riding his bike south on Jefferson Street at Eighth Street about 2:30 p.m. when he struck the woman in the middle of the road.

The woman was taken to nearby UF Health Jacksonville. Police said she apparently struck her head on the ground.

Police said the bicyclist did not appear to be impaired but that it was "just a weird accident."
