EDMONTON – A cyclist was sent to hospital Monday afternoon after being hit by a vehicle in south Edmonton.

The cyclist was reportedly trying to turn left onto Davies Road from 86 Street, when she was struck by a southbound vehicle.

Police say it happened during a green light.

Cst. Cameron James of the Edmonton Police Service reminds people that they need to obey the rules of the road if they’re cycling on it. Both motorists and cyclists also need to pay attention.

“So just keep your head up, watch…because it can happen to anybody,” he said.

In this case, the cyclist’s injuries are thought to be minor.
