8:30 AM: We’re breaking this out of the morning traffic report: An incident involving a bicycle and car has sent a woman to the hospital. It happened near 46th/47th and Genesee [map]; police tell us the woman was riding a cargo/family bicycle with a child, and that the child was not hurt. Westbound Genesee is closed; eastbound is open. We’re still working to get more details but at this point police are not expecting the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad, which indicates that the woman’s injuries are not life-threatening. Officers are talking with the driver at the scene.
8:39 AM: Police say the street will reopen shortly.
9:11 AM: Seattle Fire spokesperson Capt. Shata Stephenson tells us that this was a “low-speed” collision and the rider, 41, was taken to the hospital mostly for evaluation purposes. We have an inquiry out with Harborview too.
