A cyclist has been killed in traffic accident in South Delta.

According to a press release, Delta Police were called to a traffic collision around 1:30 p.m. this afternoon (Aug. 7) at 72nd Street and 36th Avenue, near the Boundary Bay Airport.

The cyclist had been travelling on 36th Avenue while the vehicle had been travelling south on 72nd Street. The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and is cooperating with police.
