A Cyclist Got Stuck Under A Truck After A Crash On Montreal's Saint-Laurent Boulevard

A 66-year-old has died after a crash with a truck on the corner of rue de Liège and boulevard Saint-Laurent in Montreal's Villeray neighbourhood Tuesday afternoon.*

According to SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant, the collision occurred at 2:35 p.m. as the truck was turning right onto de Liège and the cyclist was heading down Saint-Laurent.

The cyclist then became lodged under the truck until the fire department was able to free him.

The truck driver, a man in his 60s, was not injured but received treatment for shock at the scene, Brabant said.

As of 4:30 p.m., Saint-Laurent was closed to traffic south of boulevard Crémazie as investigators conducted an analysis.

Police confirmed the cyclist's death on Wednesday evening.
