A cyclist was hit by a car in Montreal North on Saturday evening.

He was transported to hospital in critical condition and police said they fear for his life.

Police received several calls around 5:45 p.m. about an accident on the corner of Bruxelles Ave. and Monselet St. According to bystanders, the man, whose identity and age remain unclear, was riding his bike northbound on Bruxelles Ave. while the woman, 33, was driving westbound on Monselet St.

Police are led to believe the collision occurred after the cyclist failed to respect the stop sign at the intersection. Meanwhile, the driver didn’t have any stop sign.  

The woman was treated for shock and suffered no injuries.

A perimeter has been set up around Bruxelles Ave. and Monselet St. The latter is closed between Ave. and St-Vital Blvd.

The police collision unit is investigating.
