Cyclist Killed After Morning Collision in Brampton


A cyclist has died after being struck by a vehicle in Brampton.

Shortly before 8:00 a.m., Peel police announced that a pedestrian had been struck in the Dixie Road and Mayfield Road area and sustained life-threatening injuries. The area was closed as a result and the Major Collision Bureau was called to investigate. 

Peel Paramedics announced that the victim was taken to a Toronto trauma centre, but new reports indicate that, sadly, the cyclist has succumbed to his injuries. 

Global News is reporting that the victim was a 52-year-old male and that he died in hospital after the collision. The driver of the vehicle remained on scene. 

The weather may have been a factor in the tragic accident.
