Cyclist succumbs to injuries suffered in collision

Preliminary investigation suggests that the cyclist failed to stop at a stop sign

The cyclist involved in the collision June 4 at 12th and Greenwood succumbed to her injuries, Sgt. Terry Deley of the Campbell River RCMP said.

The Campbell River RCMP and BC Ambulance responded to a report of a collision involving a truck and a cyclist at the intersection of 12th Avenue and Greenwood Street last Thursday at 10 a.m.

Upon arrival at the scene, a female cyclist was found suffering from very serious injuries as a result of the crash, Staff Sgt. Troy Beauregard said. The cyclist was treated by BC ambulance personnel and taken to Campbell River General Hospital.

Collision investigators are examining the scene to determine exactly what occurred. Preliminary investigation suggests that the cyclist failed to stop at a stop sign and crossed in front of the path of the truck, Beauregard said. The cyclist was not wearing a helmet.

No name has been released pending notification of next of kin.  The collision is being investigated by the Campbell River RCMP Municipal Traffic section.
