KELOWNA - The 62-year-old cyclist who died Sept. 25 after colliding with a car near Springfield Road has been identified by the B.C. Coroners Service.

Imre James Nagy of Kelowna was riding his bicycle northbound on Belgo Road in Kelowna around noon when he was involved in a collision with a car near the intersection with Springfield Road.

He was taken by ambulance to Kelowna General Hospital but succumbed to his injuries the following day.

“I don’t know that charges will be laid because it’s alleged the cyclist is at fault,” RCMP spokesman Cpl. Joe Duncan said earlier this week.

The B.C. Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the incident.
