Hobbs Police Department officers responded to a pedestrian hit by vehicle Monday morning.

Around 5:28 a.m. officers found Gary Lopez, 51, was struck by a vehicle near the intersection of Turner and Llano. Lopez was traveling west bound on Llano and was walking his bike crossing the intersection of Turner when he was struck by a vehicle driven by Lorenzo Gonzales, 57, according to HPD officials.

Gonzales was attempting to make a north bound turn onto Turner from east bound Llano when he failed to yield and struck Lopez.

Lopez complained of neck, arm and head pain after being struck and was transported to Lea Regional Medical Center. He was later released from the hospital.

Gonzales was cited for failing to yield to Lopez.
