A cyclist suffered a possible broken leg and other injuries after being struck by a vehicle Wednesday.

Shortly before 5 p.m., a witness told RCMP that the male cyclist was allegedly on the wrong side of the road on 20th Street when he turned into the path of a truck at the intersection of 43rd Avenue.

“The witness said the impact sent the cyclist flying,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

The Vernon cyclist, 28, was wearing a helmet. He was transported to Vernon Jubilee Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The driver of the truck, a 53-year-old Vernon woman, was not injured. Her vehicle suffered several thousand dollars in damage as a result of the collision.

No violation ticket had been issued as of press time.
