A cyclist was struck and killed on the Pat Bay Highway on Wednesday afternoon.

Corporal Erin Fraser from the Sidney North Saanich RCMP said officers got a call around noon to a motor vehicle accident just south of the McTavish interchange on the Pat Bay Highway.

Members of the Central Saanich Police, B.C. Ambulance and North Saanich Fire Rescue also responded to the incident.

According to witnesses, Fraser said an older male cyclist riding along the southbound lane of the highway was struck by a white van travelling in the same direction.

On Wednesday afternoon, police said they didn’t believe speed or alcohol were factors in the accident on the part of the driver of the van and were examining whether or not the cyclist entered the vehicle lane.

The cyclist was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. As of Wednesday afternoon he had not yet been identified.
