"Investigators believe that the driver of the pickup proceeded north bound through a fresh green light after stopping for the red light, while the east bound cyclist proceeded through the fresh red light, colliding with the pickup. The investigation is continuing," RCMP said.

"Police would like to remind cyclists that Motor Vehicle Act laws apply to them and that they must obey traffic control devices. This incident should also be a reminder to drivers to check left and right before entering intersections, even on a green light."
