Update – Potential witnesses of cyclist fatality asked to contact police
Police are asking anyone whom they have not yet spoken with, to contact them regarding the collision between the cyclist and vehicle on August 7, at 72nd Street and 36th Avenue, around 1:30 pm.
Several independent witnesses have now provided statements to police.
“It is too early to determine if there will be any charges in regard to the collision,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. “However, as part of the investigation, police are looking into traffic flow in the area, as well as the volume of cyclists who use the area to access the Boundary Bay Dyke, or as a route to travel to Ladner Trunk Road.”
Police will also consider potential view obstructions or engineering recommendations, and will be writing a report on the incident. The investigation will also include an examination of the vehicle involved.
Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police are asked to call 604-946-4411.
