RCMP ask for help identifying hurt cyclist
Mar 18 2012
A cyclist was in critical condition Saturday after hitting a jogger in Qualicum Beach.
The cyclist did not have any identification on him after the 6 a.m. collision on Rupert Road, and Oceanside RCMP are trying to find out who the man is.
He is described as Caucasian, between 50 and 55 years old, about six feet tall with a greying moustache and a closely shaved head.
The man was pedalling an old blue Norco hardtail Katmandu bike that was in poor condition. He wore black fleece pants, black rubber boots, a plaid fleece jacket, a multi-coloured knitted tuque, a black Nexxus watch and a wedding band.
The female jogger was taken to Nanaimo Regional Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The man was taken to Victoria General Hospital via air ambulance. As of Saturday night, he had not regained consciousness.
Anyone who can assist in identifying the man is asked to call Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
