A collision just outside of Brandon claimed the life of a Toronto cyclist Monday evening.
The incident occurred at approximately 8 p.m. two kilometres west of Brandon on Highway 1A. The investigation revealed that a eastbound SUV struck a cyclist that was headed in the same direction. The 24-year-old male cyclist from Toronto was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
His name was not released.
The driver, a 28-year-old woman from Sioux Valley First Nation, was not injured. The three passengers inside the SUV were also not injured.
Alcohol is not considered a factor in the collision. It’s unclear if the victim was wearing a helmet.
The investigation continues.
