Cyclist injured in Ladysmith bike crash

Cyclist remains in hospital
An incident on Brenton Page Road on Sunday, June 9 between a couple of cyclists triggered a call to the air ambulance. The helicopter created a bit of a stir as it flew over the fields and homes along the stretch of road and then made a landing on the driveway of a residence. It turns out the helicopter was not needed, so it made a rather dusty, but exciting take-off.

A black air ambulance made an appearance on Brenton Page Road last Sunday morning, June 9, following a collision between a couple of cyclists. 

A group of about 20 bicyclists had just turned onto the road from the Trans-Canada Highway and were headed east when one cyclist clipped the tire of another causing a crash.
The scene was attended by members of the North Oyster Fire Rescue Department with two emergency vehicles. RCMP and members of the BC Ambulance Service were also present. The advanced life support team arrived with their ambulance shortly after, and the injured cyclist was transported to hospital by ground ambulance just before the helicopter landed. 

A first responder said that the cyclist suffered head and shoulder injuries. According to the local RCMP the injured cyclist remains in hospital with some minor non-life threatening injuries.
Traffic was halted on Brenton Page Road while the air ambulance circled and then landed on a driveway opposite the Sawmill Direct site. After a few minutes on the ground the air ambulance took off again.
