VENICE, Fla. (AP) - A UCLA club triathlete coach remains hospitalized more than a week after being struck by an SUV while competing in a race in Venice, Florida.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1HZoiU0 ) reports that 26-year-old Brady O'Bryan was injured Nov. 8 when an SUV pulled in front of him while he was riding his bicycle in the Challenge Florida triathlon in Sarasota County.

O'Bryan was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital's intensive care unit. The hospital confirmed Thursday that O'Bryan remained hospitalized. An update of his condition wasn't available.

O'Bryan, who coaches UCLA's club triathlon team, was riding on a part of the course shared by both cyclists and traffic.

Police say that the SUV's driver, 73-year-old Chin Lo of Venice, appeared to be at fault for failing to yield the right of way.

According to a crash report, police are still investigating. No charges have been made.
