File # 2022-30610

The investigation into yesterday’s fatality involving the cyclist is on-going.

On May 24, 2022 at approximately 6:53 a.m., the Kelowna RCMP responded to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 97 at Parkinson Road in Kelowna.

The initial investigation has found that a 70-year-old male cyclist attempted to cross Highway 97 from west to east during morning, rush hour traffic when he was struck by a Honda Fit travelling northbound.

The cyclist succumbed to his injuries at the scene. The Southeast Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (SECARS) attended and assisted with the investigation. A portion of the highway was closed while officers conducted the investigation and it was re-opened again by 10:00 a.m.

Our thoughts are with the victim's family at this difficult time.
