Authorities from the Windsor Police Dept. have provided details on three separate car vs. bicycle accidents that took place in Windsor on Wednesday afternoon.
According to sources, the first incident involved a 65 year-old driver colliding with a 71-year-old cyclist at approximately 11:45 a.m, while trying to make a left turn from McKay Avenue onto Grand Marais Road.
The driver was given a ticket for making an unsafe turn.
The second incident took place at Wyandotte Street East and Buckingham Boulevard and involved a 51-year-old motorist that struck a cyclist while attempting to make a turn onto Wyandotte Street at approximately 12:45 p.m. It's believed that police do have a witness to this accident, however that person was unable to remain at the scene to make a statement. As such, the accident is still under investigation.
The third collision occurred later that afternoon at approximately 5:45 p.m, where a 22-year-old bicycle rider suffered minor injuries after colliding with a vehicle that was in a turning lane just near Tecumseh Road East. The cyclist was ticketed for failing to yield to traffic.
At the law offices of Greg Monforton & Partners, we urge all drivers and cyclists to share the road and to observe the traffic laws that are enforced in the province.
