Cyclist struck by car at Fourth and Burde

A helmet-less cyclist was struck by a car at the Fourth Avenue and Burde Street intersection on Nov. 3.

A cyclist traveling east along Burde Street was struck by a car at the Fourth Avenue intersection just before noon on Nov. 3.

A cyclist was struck by a car at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Burde Street just before noon on Nov. 2.

A neighbour who spoke to the injured male said the victim was coherent after the crash.

“I guess he was travelling east and the car was headed south,” he said. The man was not wearing a helmet.

At the Burde Street and Fourth Avenue intersection, it’s vehicles travelling on Fourth Avenue that have the right of way; bicycles on the road are governed by the same rules as cars and must stop at stop signs.

The neighbour said that he heard the screech of tires from the house and came to see what had happened.

“There must be 20 feet of rubber, [the driver] tried really hard to stop.”

The cyclist was taken to hospital.
