Yellow police tape cordoned off the area and a white bicycle lay on its side against a traffic light standard at the southeast corner of the intersection.

Two vehicles — a blue Honda and a teale-coloured Mazda pickup truck — were damaged in the incident.

Collision reconstructionists were still on the scene at 6:30 p.m. — a northbound lane of Richmond Avenue between Fort and Bay streets closed to traffic — trying to piece together what happened, said Const. Matt Rutherford.

In some crashes “it’s very clear what happened and in some it’s not as clear,” he said.
