Allegheny County Police said they found the bicyclist involved in a collision that prompted them to close a section of Ohio River Boulevard in Bellevue on Friday.

Police Lt. Andrew Schurman said a box truck driver told Bellevue police he clipped a bicyclist as he traveled inbound but couldn't find him when he turned around and looked.

Bellevue police closed the road about 5:50 a.m. between Kendall Avenue and the McKees Rocks Bridge, an emergency dispatch supervisor said.

Schurman said after several hours of searching, a motorist told police the bicyclist rode across the McKees Rocks Bridge. Police reopened the road about 10 a.m., the dispatch supervisor said.

County police tracked down the bicyclist and plan to interview him, Schurman said. He said he didn't know whether the bicyclist was hurt. No charges have been filed against the truck driver.
