A bicyclist suffered head injuries after he rode into a motor vehicle that was waiting at a stop sign in Bridgewater on Thursday morning, police said.

Stephen Rogan, 38, of Bridgewater, was riding his bicycle on Pearl Street about 7:30 a.m. when he tried to turn onto Perkins Street and struck the side of the vehicle, witnesses and the driver told officers, according to a statement from Bridgewater police.
