By Megan Gillis, Ottawa Citizen, June 25, 2019

An 18-year-old cyclist was charged with failing to stop at a red light after his bike collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Byron and Kirkwood avenues Monday night.

Paramedics said that the young man was taken to the trauma centre with head injury and a broken leg after the 10:30 p.m. crash.

His condition was initially critical but his injuries are not life-threatening, paramedics said.

Ottawa police said the cyclist faces a $325 fine, the same amount a motorist would be charged for failing to stop at a red light.
