A cyclist is in critical condition after being hit by a pickup truck at the intersection of Massey Drive/Winnipeg Street and 20th Avenue/Carney Street Monday.
The accident occurred about 4:15 p.m. The cyclist, a 23-year-old man from Prince George, was taken to the University Hospital of Northern B.C. where he is listed in critical condition.

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.
