Cyclist injured in collision with pickup
A 23-year-old man was in critical condition when he was taken to hospital Monday afternoon after colliding with a pickup truck while riding his bike.
Emergency personnel were called to the scene at Massey Drive/Winnipeg Street and 20th Avenue/Carney Street at about 4:15 p.m.
“Investigators believe that the driver of the pickup proceeded north bound through a fresh green light after stopping for the red light, while the eastbound cyclist proceeded through the fresh red light, colliding with the pickup. The investigation is continuing,” RCMP said.
“Police would like to remind cyclists that Motor Vehicle Act laws apply to them and that they must obey traffic control devices. This incident should also be a reminder to drivers to check left and right before entering intersections, even on a green light.”
