CORNWALL – A cyclist is in hospital with serious injuries after a collision with a car near the intersection of Ninth and Sydney Streets.
Emergency crews were in the area around 9:30 a.m. just north of the intersection on Sydney Street.
A touring-style bicycle with a rear basket lay at the side of Sydney Street while, a few feet away, a Ford Taurus was stopped in the north bound right-hand lane.
The car had its mirror snapped off and the windshield on the passenger side was cracked, suggesting someone or something had hit it during the collision.
Cornwall Police Const. Dan Cloutier told Cornwall Newswatch the cyclist, described as an elderly man, was taken to hospital by ambulance with serious injuries.
Sydney Street from Ninth to nearly Tenth Street has been closed to traffic for a police investigation.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call them at 613-933-5000.
It’s not known whether charges will be laid as the investigation is ongoing.
