The intersection of Aviation Parkway and Evans Road in Morrisville was shut down Thursday morning by an accident involving a dump truck and a cyclist.

The huge vehicle went down the shoulder of the road and smashed through the supports for the intersection's traffic light system.

Police said the cyclist turned left from Evans onto Aviation on a red light into path of the truck. The bicyclist suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.

The truck was loaded with rock, and officials said it would take time to pull it out and repair the traffic lights.

Morrisville police were directing traffic.
