A man is in critical condition after he was struck by a car in Baldwin early Saturday morning, according to Nassau County Police.

Detectives said the victim, an unidentified 38-year-old, was riding his bicycle east on Grand Terrace Avenue in Baldwin when he was struck by a car. The 2010 Toyota was driven by a 45-year-old female and was northbound on Grand Avenue, cops said.

The accident happened at 1:15 a.m. Saturday, police reported.

The car that struck him passed all safety inspections at the scene. Detectives said they do not suspect any criminality in the accident.
