Hamilton Police investigating after cyclist was struck and killed near lift bridge
Hamilton Police are investigating the events that led to a cyclist being struck and killed by a vehicle Monday (Mar. 22) evening.
At around 6:30, Police say a 47-year-old Stoney Creek man was riding his bicycle southbound on Eastport Dr., “in the area of the Burlington Lift Bridge.”
Meanwhile, a 30-year-old Hamilton man was also travelling southbound on Eastport in his 2003 Honda Accord sedan.
“Due to circumstances still under investigation, the two vehicles came into contact with one another,” said police. “The cyclist sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
It’s the city’s first fatal collision involving a cyclist this year.
The driver of the Accord remained at the scene and is said to be cooperating.
The Hamilton Police Service Collision Reconstruction Unit has taken over the investigation and say speed and impairment have not been ruled out as a contributing factor.
