Delta Police Issue Warning After Cyclist Injured In Tsawwassen

Darpan News Desk , 15 May, 2019
  • Delta Police Issue Warning After Cyclist Injured In Tsawwassen

On Friday, May 10 at approximately 9:30 p.m., a cyclist was struck at Highway 17 and 52nd Street in Tsawwassen.

 

The driver of the vehicle involved in the collision had been stopped at a red light. When the light turned green the driver proceeded westbound on Highway 17, striking a cyclist. The cyclist was attempting to cross the highway while heading north on 52nd Street, although the Highway 17 traffic had the green light.


The cyclist was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver and others who witnessed the incident remained at the scene. The Delta Police Traffic Unit attended to conduct the investigation.


“Fortunately this incident occurred at a low speed,” says Cris Leykauf, Public Affairs manager for Delta Police Department. “As the weather heats up and more cyclists are out on the streets, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind both cyclists and drivers to be aware and be mindful of each other.


At an intersection cyclists can either ride with traffic, obeying lights and stop signs, or they may choose to dismount and act as a pedestrian, walking their bicycle across the intersection when safe to do so, according to lights and applicable signage.”
