15 Year Old Cyclist in Collision with Truck

On Thursday, June 7, around 9:45 PM, Sarnia Police attended the intersection of Indian and Exmouth involving a pick-up truck and a cyclist.  The BMX bike being operated by a 15 year old Sarnia youth was lying partially under the driver’s side front tire of the truck.  The truck had been northbound on Indian on a green light. 

Information from all involved and independent witnesses indicated that the cyclist had entered the intersection in the crosswalk, on a red light.  The bike had no lights, no horn or signaling device and the youth was not wearing a helmet.  He was incredibly lucky to have suffered only soreness to his leg and knee.  He was transported to hospital to be checked. 

The driver of the truck, a 48 year old Sarnia man was not hurt.  There was minor damage to his vehicle.   The youth was issued a summons for Failing to Stop for a Red Light.
