A 14-year-old cyclist was expected to recover after getting into a collision with a Jeep Patriot Monday afternoon in Langley’s Brookswood neighbourhood, police said.

He was not wearing a bicycle helmet.

Witnesses told The Times that the teen appeared to have been knocked unconscious, but it looked like he was coming to as paramedics loaded him into an ambulance.

The teen was transported to hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Jeep remained at the collision scene. Speed was not believed to be a factor in the collision.

No ticket was issued.
