A New Kensington man was charged with driving under the influence after his vehicle struck a bicyclist in Oakland on Friday morning.

The bicyclist, identified only as a 31-year-old man from Squirrel Hill, was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland with knee and back injuries, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard said.

Ryan Patrick Fisher, 24, was taken into custody following the crash that occurred at 8:07 a.m. at the intersection of Schenley Drive and Schenley Drive Extension, Richard said. Fisher, who told police he was on his way to work, said the sun blinded him and he couldn't see the bicycle, which was hit head-on, she said.

Fisher, who failed a field sobriety test, was taken for tests and released to family members, Richard said.

He will be mailed a summons to appear for a hearing on the charges, she said.
