A bicyclist who crashed Friday afternoon in Kosciusko County was hospitalized with severe injuries to his head and face, according to the sheriff’s department.

Daniel R. King, 50, of Leesburg was riding west on McKenna Road when he suddenly went over his handlebars for an unknown reason and hit his head on the pavement, a witness told the sheriff’s department.
