The cyclist was able to get up after the crash and emergency crews were on scene. The extent of the cyclist’s injuries has not been released at this time.
The intersection itself is clear for motorists. Emergency vehicles were blocking one lane on Epsom Drive but have since cleared the scene.
Another cyclist was struck at approximately 6:30 a.m. in downtown Victoria at the intersection of Yates and Broad streets. Police on scene noted limited visibility may have been a contributing factor in that crash as the bike did not have lights or reflectors. The cyclist suffered minor injuries in that crash.
