Cyclist hit by burning fireworks hurt

Posted: Aug 16, 2011 8:48 AM MT

Police are looking for the person who tossed lit fireworks from a vehicle at three cyclists, causing one to fall from his bike and go into a ditch.

The injured cyclist fractured his arm and needed stitches on his arms and legs.

RCMP officers, who didn't release a description of the vehicle, are looking for witness to the incident.

The cyclists were biking eastbound near Cochrane on Highway 1A, about three kilometers east of Grande Valley Road.

Cochrane RCMP ask anyone with information regarding to contact them at 403-851-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

After reading the responses to that jack ass sports reporter in the states that commented on the Tour De France and the barbed wire fence crash, it is really disappointing to see some of the comments posted by the locals here in Alberta. How anyone can see that as "funny, laughable or entertaining" is very scary. Reading that the accident happened is bad enough, seeing some of the negative blog comments posted makes it worse.

To go out with firecrackers and purposely attack unsespecting riders is malicious and I would hope that any and all witnesses come forward.

People had no problem grouping together to seek revenge against the Vancouver Canuck Moron Riot fans, why not support the cyclist community.

I had no idea that accident happened and hope that the rider who was injured has a speedy recovery.

Just shocked!
