Woman hospitalized following late-night bike crash

A Revelstoke woman was rushed to hospital in Kamloops after striking her head in a cycling accident late Saturday night.

The incident happened shortly before midnight on Apr. 26, when the 33-year-old struck the wheel of another cyclist while biking up the Douglas Street hill, the RCMP say.

She fell off her bike, hit her head on the pavement and was knocked unconscious as as a result.

BC Ambulance attended and took the woman to Queen Victoria Hospital. She was later transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, where RCMP say she is in stable condition in the intensive care unit.

RCMP say she was not wearing a helmet and that alcohol was a factor in the incident.

The RCMP are urging people to always wear helmets while cycling in order to avoid head injuries.
