Richmond RCMP is asking witnesses to come forward after a vehicle towing a trailer struck a female cyclist on River Drive on March 17.
An officer was patrolling in the area of River Drive and No. 4 Road when he came upon a female cyclist laying on the roadway in apparent medical distress shortly before 9 a.m.
Police said an investigation revealed that the 45-year old female cyclist was hit by a white, newer model pickup truck that was towing a large trailer as she entered onto the roadway from a pedestrian walkway nearby. She was transported to a local hospital by Emergency Health Services where she was treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries.
“The female cyclist involved in this collision was injured quite badly. Fortunately, one of our frontline officers came upon her during routine patrols and was able to offer assistance. Our investigators would really like to speak with the driver of the vehicle involved,” said Cpl. Ian Henderson.
If you happened to witness this incident, or if you have dash-cam video, contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212, quoting file number 21-7094. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit them online at www.solvecrime.ca
