A 40-year-old Kelowna woman was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after she hit a pickup at an intersection Wednesday morning.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report a cyclist was down and injured at the corner of Cook Road and Gordon Drive at 6:30 a.m. this morning.

A 33-year-old Kelowna man driving a black Ford Ranger was eastbound on Cook Road attempting to turn right onto Gordon Drive when he turned into the woman who was riding southbound along Gordon. The driver apparently did not see the cyclist and, when he proceeded into the turn, the woman hit the front driver’s side of the vehicle.

The cyclist was taken to hospital with undisclosed, non-life threatening injuries.

Glare from the sun may have been a factor in the crash, police say, though the investigation is ongoing. No charges have been laid.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP Cnst. CARIGNAN at 250-762-3300 or one can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-847 or text to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
