The collision between a driver and a cyclist took place on Monday, Mar. 4, 2019. Police responded to a call that a cyclist had been stuck in the area of Bayridge Drive and Coverdale Drive at approximately 6:40 p.m. that day. According to police, the male cyclist was travelling southbound on Bayridge Drive when he was struck by the motorist and thrown from his bicycle onto the sidewalk.

“The vehicle that struck the cyclist left the scene without making any attempt to render assistance to the injured male,” Kingston police said in a press release.

Frontenac Paramedics attended the scene and transported the cyclist to Kingston General Hospital (KGH) with non-life-threatening injuries.
