OROVILLE, Calif. -

A woman was seriously injured after being hit by a car in Oroville.    These are photos of the crash taken by John Loewe of the Oroville Mirror newspaper.     

The collision happened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday on Grand Avenue in Oroville.

A car hit a woman on a bicycle, throwing her about 100 feet.  The car then hit a power pole, shearing it off, and knocking it into the street.  The road was closed for quite some time.

We have a call into Oroville Police to see if the driver will face any charges.
