The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. has cleared the Elk Valley RCMP of any wrongdoing during a fatal accident earlier this month.
On July 12, police responded to an erratic driver in a grey Chevrolet truck in the area of Kikkoman Provincial Park.
Before police could attempt a traffic stop the Chevrolet collided with a cyclist.
The cyclist later died in hospital.
After reviewing the evidence, including civilian witness statements, video footage, and police information the IIO determined that police action did not play a role in the cyclist’s tragic death.
