Cyclist hit by garbage truck at Yonge and Gerrard

A female cyclist and garbage truck collided Tuesday morning at a downtown intersection, leaving the woman with life-threatening injuries.

The 38-year-old woman had been cycling westbound on Gerrard St. E., police said. The collision, shortly before 8:45 a.m., happened at Yonge St. around the time the westbound truck turned right, according to police.

“Right now we have a pretty good idea of what happened,” said Const. Clint Stibbe, adding witnesses and video have helped piece together the crash.

The cyclist remained in hospital Tuesday night with life-threatening injuries but Stibbe refused to elaborate.
