Cyclist hurt in collision

The incident occurred in the 5700 block of Okanagan Landing Road Monday at 7:45 a.m.

A cyclist was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Monday morning after being involved in a collision with a pickup.

The incident occurred in the 5700 block of Okanagan Landing Road at 7:45 a.m.

“A witness said the cyclist was in the bike lane when she abruptly turned left, without warning, into traffic which was going the same direction as her,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The cyclist was struck by an individual driving a truck. The truck driver was reportedly doing the speed limit, saw the cyclist veer left but could not avoid contact.

The cyclist, whose age or hometown was not available, was taken to hospital for observation. It is believed her injuries are not life-threatening.

“They didn’t call out an analyst so the injuries were not serious enough to be concerned from that perspective,” said Molendyk.

The police report does not say if the cyclist was wearing a helmet.
