    Default Fellow cyclist in critical condition

    Cory from the bike shop south got into an accident on Macleod/50th ave last Friday and heís in critical condition. It sounds pretty serious. I donít think Iíve met him in person but I keep in touch with a few people from the bike shop. The south shop is doing an event to donate the profit from sales to Cory on Wednesday. If anyone needs something and like to help Cory at the same time you may do so.

    Iím not affiliated with the shop at all. Iíd just like to spread the news as a fellow cyclist in the community. There is also a gofundme page, someone posted the link on the bike shop fb.

    That’s what I thought as well based on the description of the damage on the car but I don’t have more details. We’ll probably know more in the future.

    Just found out that he passed away today. Apparently he hit the car turning left.

    Yea t-boned a car turning left. The rest of the details are all over the map. First it was a pedestrian, then it was him speeding and running a light, and now it’s an improper left turn by the car.

    So the car would of had to be oncoming and turned left in front of him in order to hit the right side (passenger) side of the vehicle?

    Driver didn't see cyclist coming toward him?

    If I had to speculate, he was going downhill and he was a very strong cyclist so he was likely going faster than the average cyclist. It won't be surprising that the other motorist would misjudge his speed.

    A car making an improper left turn through the bikes lanes is how I got creamed biking to work... I got really lucky though and walked away relatively unscathed considering I got hit by a car. Really feel for this fellow cyclists family.

    This is exactly what happened to me last year. Got a nice broken collarbone out of it. Now I approach every intersection like a car is going to pull in or out of it.

    Having ridden bicycles and motorcycles for most of my life, defensive riding is the most important skill set. You can have the right of way, but if a car is not expecting a bike and doesn't see you, the consequences are very severe and in this case life ending.

    Condolences to the family
