A cyclist was the victim of a right hook by a truck today.
Both cyclist and truck were turning right onto Dundas from Sterling Rd (see the Google map photo I've attached: Dundas is the street with the bike lane).
The only comments from Police are that the truck was close to the curb, and so the cyclist wouldn't have had much room to pass. There is no other information, and it's not clear to me that the cyclist was the one overtaking.
From the Toronto star photo ( http://www.thestar.com/news/article/...-and-lansdowne) the cyclist appears to have been hit on or behind the stop line at the very beginning of the turn.
If this is a case of a cyclist overtaking a truck, then it is probably avoidable. If it's the other way around, there probably isn't much the cyclist could have done. Thoughts?
