Vernon cyclist strikes pedestrian

A cyclist was issued a violation ticket after striking a pedestrian in Vernon Tuesday.

The incident occurred just after 7 p.m. on 34th Street and Okanagan Avenue.

The 18-year-old Vernon cyclist either couldn’t stop on his bike or didn’t stop for two people in a crosswalk at that location.

The bike clipped a 21-year-old man from Kelowna and hit a 24-year-old Vernon man, who was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with a shoulder injury.

The cyclist was issued a ticket for careless cycling under the Motor Vehicle Act.

A witness in a vehicle that had stopped for the men in the crosswalk called the police.
