By Guy Quenneville, CBC News Ottawa, March 22, 2022

Driver Sheila Perry says she was coming back from the grocery store last Thursday when she witnessed the fatal collision that left a 43-year-old Ottawa cyclist dead.

...Perry said she was stopped at the north end of the intersection of North River Road and Donald Street when she saw a female cyclist wearing a purple helmet stopped on the west side, down from the Adàwe  Crossing bridge and the Rideau Sports Centre.

..."This is more than just cycling. I think the [city] operations have to be reviewed," Perry said, adding that she hopes the grader's sightlines are also looked at.
