A two-vehicle crash between a dump truck and a pedal-powered electric bicycle has killed an Altona woman.
RCMP say the accident happened at around 1 p.m. on Monday on Road 6 North and Road 6 West, just southwest of Altona.
The dump truck, travelling northbound at the time, collided with the 21-year-old woman riding the bicycle at the uncontrolled intersection. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The 52-year-old man driving the dump truck — also from Altona — was not injured.
RCMP are continuing to investigate the crash.
The woman’s name won’t be released.
