BURLINGTON, VT. >> Police are investigating after a bicyclist was injured in a collision with a sport utility vehicle in Burlington over the weekend.

WCAX-TV reports the accident occurred just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday on Shelburne Road. Police say 58-year-old Sam Norris was biking south in the travel lane when he was struck by an SUV driven by 35-year-old Jacob Barewicz.

Norris suffered injuries to his head, neck and body. He is expected to recover.
