Tucker was riding his Trek mountain bike on the edge of Groesbeck, just west of 152nd Avenue in Grand Haven Township, when he was struck by a 2002 Jeep Liberty about 7:30 a.m., said Lt. Lee Hoeksma of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department. The driver of the sport utility vehicle — Tammi Renee Cooper, 45, of Grand Haven Township — said she never saw the bicyclist, Hoeksma said.

The bicyclist was wearing dark clothing and did not have a light or reflectors on his bicycle, Hoeksma said. Conditions were dark and rainy at the time.

Tucker was taken by ambulance to North Ottawa Community Hospital. He was listed in good condition this morning, a hospital spokesperson said.
