Witnesses sought for collision that killed cyclist

It is too soon to tell if charges will be laid, police say

Victoria police are hoping more witnesses will come forward to help them unravel what happened when a cyclist and a dump truck collided on Nov. 28 at 2:10 p.m.

Victoria resident Mark Metcalfe, 50, was killed in the incident.

Police crash analysts returned to the corner of Burnside Road West and Harriet Road late last week to reconstruct the the scene. It is too soon to tell if charges will be laid, said Const. Mike Russell, VicPD’s spokesperson.

Witnesses are asked to contact Victoria police Const. Andy Dunstan at 250-995-7654.
