Man on bicycle hit by car near Kiln elementary school

A man riding a bicycle on Kiln-DeLisle Road on Friday morning was taken to a Gulfport hospital after he was hit by a car, sheriff’s officials confirmed.

Hancock County Chief Deputy Don Bass said the man, who was born in 1969, was hit about 6:15 a.m. just east of East Hancock Elementary School.

The man was taken to Garden Park Medical Center with a head laceration and a broken arm, but Bass said none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Bass said the car’s driver was not issued any citations at the accident, but an investigation is ongoing.
