SURREY — Police are calling on witnesses to come forward to help them figure out if a badly injured cyclist fell off her bike or was knocked off.

“The victim is still recovering from her head injuries which are considered life-altering,” Surrey RCMP Sergeant Alanna Dunlop said. “As a result, police and family are appealing to anyone who may have additional information or observed the cyclist before she was injured to determine the exact circumstances behind this incident.”

The 61-year-old woman was found unresponsive on the roadway in the 14700-block of Winter Crescent on June 12, at about 2:45 p.m. After paramedics treated her she was flown to hospital by air ambulance.

Dunlop said police spoke with many people at the scene but haven’t been able to determined what transpired. “Police are looking for witnesses or video surveillance that would help determine if the female fell off her bike of her own accord or she was knocked off.”

Police ask anyone with information to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
