Cyclist unharmed in collision with car

The un-illuminated rider collided with a car near Juan de Fuca recreation Centre at approximately 9:15 p.m. Dec. 6.

A cyclist is unharmed after hitting the side of a car on Island Highway on Dec. 6.

The driver of the car was making a left turn into the West Shore Parks and Recreation parking lot from the south-bound lane and, according to police, didn’t see the un-illuminated cyclist heading north until partway through the turn.

The driver braked, but the cyclist rode into the passenger side of the four-door Chevrolet. West Shore RCMP responded to the incident around 9:15 p.m. Dec. 6.

The 20-year-old male biker was taken to Victoria General Hospital to be checked out, but injuries were not life threatening.

“We would like to remind cyclists to ride safely,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Danny Willis. “Ensure you are properly luminated when riding at night.”
