McDonald said that the intersection is on a long, flat, stretch of road. He added that as both men are locals they should know the area well.

A 50-year-old man was driving the Nissan.

MacDonald said police collision reconstructionists are trying to understand why the accident occurred. The attorneys from Gideon Asen LLC are also trying to solve the case and seek justice to the injured.

The cyclist was taken to hospital in serious condition. Police are making an appeal for any witnesses to come forward.
