A 67-year-old cyclist struck on the Kinnaird Bridge in Castlegar on June 4 appears to have non-life threatening injuries, according to Castlegar RCMP.
RCMP said the incident occurred about 8:50 a.m. when a man was biking onto the bridge and struck by the side-view mirror of a vehicle.
The collision likely occurred because the man didn’t dismount his bike before a “cyclists stop and dismount” sign located before the bridge, stated RCMP.
Cyclists need to dismount and walk their bike on a sidewalk along the side of the bridge, due to narrow sections.
Another cyclist who was also riding with the man at the time was not injured.
No charges have been laid to either the driver or cyclist involved in the incident at this time.
Alcohol is not believed to be a contributing factor in the crash.
An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
