Collision with Cement Truck Kills Cyclist in The Pas

A cyclist has been killed in The Pas after being hit by a cement truck shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Monday.

RCMP say the male cyclist was travelling through the intersection of Fischer Avenue and 3rd Street when he was hit. Witnesses told police the cement truck had a green light at the time of the crash.

The cyclist was wearing headphones, which police say was a factor in the accident. He was pronounced dead shortly after.

It was also determined that the truck had a full load and was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.

No charges have been laid against the truck driver.

    this is my son that has been hit and killed by that cement truck. Because the headphones were hanging around his neck doesn’t mean he was listening to music. PEOPLE, don’t you think you should be careful not to pass judgement to quickly. There are also blind spots at that intersection. I’m not sure I feel sorry for that driver, I wonder what his eyesight is like.
