Crash with car sends cyclist to hospital

It’s not clear at this point how the crash occurred

A bicyclist was sent to hospital midday Friday after being hit by a car on Warren Avenue near Atkinson Street.

The extent of the cyclist’s injuries aren’t known at this time, but there was little motion as the cyclist was loaded onto a spinal board and from there onto the stretcher.

It’s not clear at this point how the crash occurred, but the bicycle was under the front end of the car when emergency crews arrived.

Fire crews were on scene to assist EHS workers and to direct traffic, with the road closed to eastbound traffic and bottlenecked heading westbound.

Police was also on scene to investigate.
