Cyclist collides with truck in Kelowna

A cyclist is recovering from serious injuries following a collision

A cyclist is recovering in hospital after riding his bike into a truck stopped at an intersection.

The incident happened about 10 p.m. Thursday, and according to witnesses the cyclist collided with a Dodge Ram pickup truck at Pandosy Street and Cadder Avenue.

Police suspect that the cyclist was under the influence of an intoxicating substance, which was likely a contributing factor to the crash.

The 46-year-old Kelowna man, who suffered what police believe to be serious however non-life threatening injuries, was transported to hospital

“RCMP are urging cyclists to wear their safety helmets,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “This was another case of a cyclist involved collision, in only a matter of days in the Central Okanagan, where the injured cyclist was not wearing a helmet.”
