A 74-year-old bicyclist from northern BC is recovering in hospital after police suspect he was hit by a vehicle Sunday morning while traveling along Highway 60 west of Edmonton.
Parkland County RCMP said the Fort St. John bicyclist was found around 6:40 a.m. Sunday in the southbound lane of the highway between Range Roads 514 and 515 with head and shoulder injuries.
In a press release, Mounties said he was conscious but not alert as he was transported to the hospital. His condition was classified as serious.
Investigators said they found a broken side mirror at the scene that appears to belong to a white-colored larger truck, similar to a Ford F-350.
Police said there was fog in the area on Sunday morning and the driver may not have been aware of the cyclist’s collision.
