A cyclist is in hospital with serious injuries after being struck and by a car on Lakeshore Road East, near Dixie Road. 

Peel Regional Police arrived shortly after 6:40 a.m. to find the male cyclist under the vehicle. 

Emergency crews used air bags to lift the car off the man, who was then transported to hospital. 

He suffered a broken bone and minor contusions, say police. The lanes have since reopened.
