A cyclist was taken to hospital with minor injuries after being struck during early-morning traffic in a Colwood intersection this morning.
West Shore RCMP Acting Sgt. Kathy Rochlitz said it happened around 7:15 a.m. at the intersection of Wilfert Road and Old Island Highway.
The cyclist was riding through the intersection toward Victoria when the bike collided with a car turning left toward Sooke.
It was heavy traffic, raining and still dark, Rochlitz said. Because of the location, traffic was backed up really far, up to the entrance of Millstream.
Traffic was cleared within an hour. Information on possible charges against the driver of the vehicle that hit the cyclist is not yet available.
