A cyclist has been taken to hospital with arm and leg injuries after she collided with a dump truck in High Park, mangling her bike.
The 20-year-old woman was riding near Roncesvalles Ave. and Dundas St. W. around 2:30 p.m. when the crash occurred.
The woman was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital where she is being treated for minor injuries.
There is no word whether any charges will be laid.
I have no information on this collision at this time...I will say that all our road users need to very aware of each other and the limitations we bring to the table of road use. Cyclists and pedestrians are not nearly visible enough to the drivers of larger vehicles. You need to do everything you can to ensure being seen....and sometimes that means staying away from the road beasts!
Right of way sometimes means = right to choose safest move!
