Traffic snarls at Agassiz/Harrison bridge after biker falls on road

A road bicyclist fell from his bike while crossing the bridge and needed medical attention

Traffic on the Agassiz/Harrison bridge reached a standstill on Friday afternoon when a bicyclist fell from his bike and required medical attention.

There’s no official word on what happened, but a witness at the scene said he just appeared to fall over, and others speculated heat stroke as the temperature was in the mid-20s, significantly cooler than earlier in the week.

Traffic was additionally affected by motorists stopping to lend aid and direct traffic until ambulances arrived on scene.
