A cyclist was struck by a vehicle in a Sidney crosswalk Thursday afternoon, suffering “minimal injuries,” according to police.
It happened at around 1 p.m. on Beacon Avenue West at Stirling Way near the Patricia Bay Highway.
The cyclist was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure, Cpl. Andres Sanchez with Sidney/North Saanich RCMP tells CHEK News.
“Police don’t believe any criminality is involved. We’re investigating to make sure everyone is safe,” said Sanchez, noting it’s unclear at this time if the cyclist was walking or riding their bike.
At 1:24 p.m., the Town of Sidney tweeted that Beacon Avenue West was down to single-lane alternating traffic, however, Sanchez says both lanes have since reopened.
“Everything is back to order,” he added.
