File #: 
16-13525

No charges have been sworn at the close of a lengthy investigation into a fatal collision involving a transport truck and a 73-year-old cyclist in March of last year.

 

On Tuesday, March 29th 2016, officers were called to the intersection of Government and Fisgard streets for a report that a female cyclist had been struck by a truck. Multiple police units quickly attended the scene. Emergency personnel immediately began lifesaving efforts but unfortunately the woman succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the truck remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

 

The investigation by VicPD included the Collision Reconstruction Team, Traffic Section, Patrol, Forensic Officers and Investigative Services Detectives. Witnesses were interviewed, forensic evidence was evaluated and physical evidence from the scene was processed. Our investigation did not result in charges being sworn.

 

The victim was well-known in our community for her volunteer work and time given to our community. Our thoughts remain with her family and loved ones and all those affected by this tragic incident.
