Cyclist killed in Mississauga

Cyclist killed after crash with dump truck in Peel
A 31-year-old woman was killed Saturday morning when she was struck by a dump truck in Peel. The accident happened around 9:30 a.m. as the woman was riding her bike southbound on Mavis Road, near Central Parkway West. Investigators say they are still looking into how she collided with the truck, that was also travelling south on Mavis. The woman was critically injured in the crash and was promptly airlifted to an area hospital. Nonetheless, she succumbed to her injuries. Police are not revealing the identity of the woman yet as they are still trying to contact her family.
Update: A few of us will ride to the location on Sunday Oct. 21 to lay flowers. We ride rom Ossinton and Queen at 10:30 am Sunday.
