NBC 6 anchor Johnny Archer and his colleague, NBC 6 photojournalist Shane Walker, were injured when they were hit by a car while cycling on Key Biscayne Friday morning, the South Florida news station reported.

The crash happened in the area of 180 Crandon Blvd. around 10:30 a.m. The driver stayed at the scene.

According to NBC6, Walker and Archer were treated by Key Biscayne Fire Rescue and both men said their injuries didn't warrant a trip to the hospital.

Archer, who calls himself a "manic cycling nerd" on his Twitter profile, anchors the weekend evening newscasts on Saturdays and Sundays at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. and joined NBC 6 in December 2017.

He previously was a weekend anchor at NBC 5 KXAS in the Dallas-Fort Worth market in Texas.
