Emergency crews airlifted a woman to hospital from Sunnyside Park in South Surrey Tuesday afternoon, following a collision between a truck and a cyclist at 24 Avenue and 156 Street.

Crash scene

"She got hit really hard," said one witness, who identified himself only as Anton. "I actually thought she was dead, but then I saw she was moving."

Police said Wednesday the cyclist, a 71-year-old Ocean Park resident, suffered non-critical injuries in the collision, which occurred around 1:30 p.m. Feb. 7.

According to the witness – who described the intersection as "the most dangerous I know" for cyclists – it happened as a black Dodge Ram 3500 accelerated into a left turn off 24 Avenue onto 156 Street.

A dent could be seen in the passenger side of a truck parked southbound at the intersection.

According to police, the driver told investigators he didn't see the cyclist. A 72-year-old South Surrey man was issued a ticket for failing to yield.
