Cyclist killed in Burnaby near Highway 1

A 51-year-old cyclist is dead after a collision with an 18-wheel tractor-trailer truck on Sprott Street near Norland Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

The cyclist, identified as Andrew Evoy of Port Moody, was transported to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster but succumbed to his injuries. The truck driver remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

That section of Sprott Street, in front of the Burnaby 8-Rinks, is currently under heavy construction for the realignment of a new highway overpass.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
