A cyclist not wearing a helmet was sent to hospital Tuesday morning after colliding with a car in Maple Ridge.
RCMP were called around 4:30 a.m this morning and blocked off Abernethy Way between 227th Street and 228th Street where the incident took place.
“The cyclist was travelling northbound on 228th (Street) when they entered the road into the path of a vehicle travelling west on Abernethy (Way),” said Const. Julie Klaussner with the Ridge Meadows RCMP.
The cyclist was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police had the area blocked off for about three hours.
The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and is cooperating with police, Klaussener said.
Police do not believe impaired driving is a factor at this time.
