Female cyclist dies on Higgins after falling into semi's path

  • Print

A 35-year-old cyclist was killed in Winnipeg Wednesday morning when she collided with a vehicle and fell into the path of a semi-trailer.

Police said the woman on the bicycle and a vehicle collided while both were travelling west on Higgins Avenue just west of Main Street around 11 a.m.

The collision caused the cyclist to fall into the path of a semi-trailer that was also headed west.

The driver of the first vehicle remained on the scene, but the truck's driver was unaware of the incident and continued westbound. Investigators later located the semi and driver.

The cyclist's family was notified of her death and police said her name would not be released.

Higgins Avenue was closed between King and Main streets for most of the afternoon.

Police said their investigation is ongoing.

Investigators didn't say if anyone would face charges.
