Niagara Police are seeking witnesses after an elderly man suffered life-threatening injuries while riding a bicycle that was struck by a truck in Niagara-on-the-Lake last night (July 13).

Police were on a routine patrol when they found an 84-year-old man lying in the north side drainage ditch on East West Line at Concession 2 after the hit-and-run collision.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics with Niagara EMS before being airlifted to an out-of-town hospital.

Police discovered he was hit by a truck or utility vehicle while cycling “and that the vehicle then left the scene prior to police arrival.”

They added that the truck that struck him “will be missing a passenger side view mirror and will have damage to the passenger side front corner.”

Investigators are asking anyone who has information (including dash cam footage) or who may have been in the general area of East West Line at or near the time of the incident, to contact police at (905) 688-4111, dial option 3, ext. 1009089.
