On September 25, 2020 at 8:15 a.m., members from the Nipissing West Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated a fail to remain collision, involving a pick-up truck and a bicycle, at the intersection of Front Street and Nipissing Street, in the Municipality of West Nipissing (Sturgeon Falls).
Investigation revealed the cyclist was riding on the far right side of the eastbound lane on Front Street attempting to cross Nipissing Street. An eastbound pick-up truck pulled up beside the cyclist, made a right turn and struck the cyclist. The driver of the pick-up truck did not stop and left the scene heading southbound on Nipissing Street.
