A Longview man is now in a local hospital after being hit by a truck Monday night.

According to the Longview Police Department, 42-year-old John Elie LeBlanc of Longview was riding his bicycle on the shoulder of the 2100 block of West Loop 281 when he began to cross the roadway and collided with a vehicle in the inside westbound lane. He was taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center where he is in stable condition.
