Update: Cyclist runs into SUV

Update September 30: ICBC has put the full blame of this accident onto the driver of the vehicle. The bike rider has contacted Castanet and she has forwarded the ICBC result, "the assessment of liability determined the motorist to be 100% responsible for the accident." 

A woman is in Kelowna General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after riding her bicycle into an SUV.

Police at the scene says the cyclist hit the SUV as the vehicle was making a turn at the corner of McClure and Lakeshore roads in the Mission.

Const. Bob Charron says the lady is lucky she wasn't more seriously injured.

Witnesses says the cyclist was traveling too fast in the bike lane and almost hit another car before she struck the Black SUV that was turning right onto McClure from the north bound lane off of Lakeshore.

Both the bike and the vehicle were traveling north on Lakeshore when the accident occurred.
