No charges against driver involved in collision with cyclist

Nanaimo RCMP have concluded their investigation into an accident that killed a cyclist in November.

Jeffery Ryan Clark, 27, died the night of Nov. 16 when the bicycle he was riding on Wall Street hit a car as it turned in to the driveway of a condominium complex. Clark was wearing dark clothing on a dark, rainy night. He was also not wearing a helmet and had no lights on his bicycle.

Cpl. Norm Smith, head of Nanaimo RCMP Traffic Services, said police concluded it was a terrible tragedy, and given the circumstances, there was no way for the driver to have seen Clark.

Police will not pursue charges against the driver, he said.
