Police are looking for witnesses to a collision on 47th Avenue near McDonalds about noon Tuesday which injured a cyclist crossing the controlled intersection.

In particular police request a male witness by the name of Robert (last name unknown) who stopped and indicated he witnessed the collision, to contact them since the phone number he provided at the scene was incorrect, said RCMP Cpl. James Allemekinders.
