Cyclist hit at 12th Avenue succumbs to injuries
A crash at the intersection of East 12th Avenue and Windsor Street has left one cyclist dead.
The 32-year-old female bicyclist was travelling northbound on Windsor on the morning of March 27 before entering East 12th Avenue where she was struck by an eastbound car.
Emergency services and police responded to a call of a collision around 7:30 a.m that morning. The cyclist was rushed to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries late Saturday night.
Though the intersection has a pedestrian/cyclist-controlled crossing light to control east/west traffic on East 12th Avenue, it's currently unknown what stage the light was on.
The driver of the car was uninjured. Alcohol and speed are not considered a factor in the collision.
Investigators are appealing for anyone who may have seen the collision to contact the Vancouver Police Collision Investigation Unit at (604) 717-3012.
This is Vancouver’s fourth traffic-related fatality of 2012, compared year-to-date to five in 2011, three in 2010 and six in 2009, according to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) press release.
