A Kelowna woman is in hospital today after getting knocked off her bike by a truck on her early morning commute.
The 40-year-old woman sustained non-life threatening injuries from colliding with a pick-up truck turning onto Gordon Drive. Police received a report at 6:30 a.m. of a cyclist collision. They discovered the driver of a Ford Ranger was heading east on Cook Road and went to make a right turn on Gordon Drive when he collided with a cyclist heading in the same direction. The woman riding the bike crashed into the driver's side of the truck.
The 33-year-old driver of the truck says he didn't see the woman and glare from the morning sun may have obstructed his view.
Kelowna RCMP are continuing to investigate the incident and are not laying any charges at this point.
