A police scanner showed police responded to a call of motor vehicle collision at 6:39 p.m. on Monday.

The driver, a Syracuse University graduate who said he was heading to a restaurant, said his car was going between 25 and 30 mph on the yellow light as the bicyclist cut through Euclid Avenue on the red light.
