A Vernon cyclist sustained injuries during an accident.

On Sept. 5 at about 7:50 a.m., RCMP officers were called to 39th Avenue and 32nd Street.

“A grey Chevy pickup driven by a 37-year-old Kamloops man hit a 30-year-old Vernon man on his bike,” said Gord Molendyk, with the RCMP.

“The truck was turning and the cyclist was coming up on the inside.”

The bike rider suffered leg injuries as a result and was taken to hospital for treatment. No charges were laid.

Excessive speeders pulled over

Two motorcyclists have been grounded.

On the weekend, an RCMP officer stopped two motorcycles on Highway 97, near Falkland, for excessive speeding.

“One was doing 160 kilometres an hour in the 90 zone and the second one was at one point doing in excess of 170 kilometres an hour,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

Both bikes have been seized for seven days and the drivers were issued $368 fines for excessive speeding.

School zones not yet in effect

With the ongoing teachers strike keeping schools out of session, that also means reduced speeds for school zones haven’t started.

“The school zones become in effect when school is in session,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.
