Police respond to collisions involving cyclists

City police responded to two separate motor vehicle collisions Monday, both involving cyclists, within a four hour time frame.

The first took place at the intersection of Arthur and Selkirk Streets just after 3:00 p.m. following a collision between a teenage cyclist and a vehicle.

Fortunately the incident was low impact, with the teenager suffering only minor injuries and required no further medical attention.

Three and a half hours later first responders were called to the area of the Harbour Expressway and Memorial Avenue, fortunately once again the cyclist required no further medical attention.

Police say while both incidents did not result in serious injuries, motor vehicle collisions involving cyclists or pedestrians carry a high risk of serious injury or death.

All road and sidewalk users are being reminded to keep that fact in mind while traveling in the city and to be aware of their surroundings.

Additionally, due to the new school year extra caution is advised for drivers in school and community safety zones, as younger pedestrians and cyclists can be unpredictable.
