A Brandon Police Service officer blocked westbound traffic from a section of Highway 1A outside Brandon on Monday night following a fatal collision between an SUV and a cyclist. Firefighter/paramedics attended, and the male cyclist was taken to hospital but later died.

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.
