Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen a cyclist-involved crash earlier in September.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of an injury-collision involving a cyclist Sept. 1 at 4:10 pm, on the 200 block of Robson Road West.

“A 42-year-old Kelowna man was apparently riding his bike eastbound on Robson Road West with his dog when an oncoming Dodge Ram pickup turned left into a driveway in front of him,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The cyclist was struck by the front of the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. He was taken to the Kelowna General Hospital for treatment where his condition deteriorated. He remains in very serious condition. Police have spoken to several witnesses as well as the 22-year-old man who is believed to be the driver but investigators continue to seek further information from anyone who may have seen the crash.”

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP Traffic Services, Cst DANILOWICH, at 250-980-5353. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
