A 72-year-old bicyclist was seriously hurt after crashing into a suspected barbed wire trap on an Arkansas bike trail, authorities say.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that the crash happened Friday morning as Charles Grim was riding his bike on the Tsa La Gi trail near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Fayetteville.

While traveling, Grim ran into a piece of barbed wire that was suspended at chest level, according to the newspaper.

Grim suffered a major head injury and was transported to a local hospital, where he was placed in intensive care, police said.

The case is being treated as a criminal investigation.

This is despicable. Whomever did this should be hunted until found and charged with attempted murder.

I agree with DoubleBlind. The trails shouldn't have to be policed constantly to stop trash from doing something like this to innocent citizens. Absolutely unconscionable!

I hope the police are testing the wire for DNA.

The victim is my uncle. I am grateful the police are looking at this as a criminal act. I am also relieved that the incident did not cause any more harm that it did.
