By Kristy Cameron, CFRA News, October 26, 2016

City staff are already looking at tweaks to the segregated bike lane on O'Connor Street, after a cyclist was injured in the bikeway’s first collision on opening day.

Not long after the ribbon cutting, a cyclist was struck by a driver who was turning left on the one-way street, according to paramedics.

"With great smiles and ringing bells we went out ... and officially opened it," says Capital Coun. David Chernushenko. "Believe me, when I listened to the evening news and heard there had already been an accident, nothing more could have hurt more than that."
