      A man in his thirties is in serious but stable condition after colliding with a street-cleaning truck in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve Wednesday morning.

      The man was coming out of an alley on Frontenac near the intersection of Ontario when he collided with a city street-cleaning truck around 7:10 AM.

      Montreal police constable Manuel Couture says witnesses told police it's the cyclist who hit the truck.

      He says the cyclist was wearing a helmet, pieces of it were scattered across the street.

      “We don’t have any more information except that he was wearing a helmet when the accident occurred, we just hope it saved his life,” Couture said.

      The cyclist suffered serious head injuries but is in stable condition.

      The city driver was not transported to hospital.

      Couture says police are investigating the accident.

      “We’re not talking about any charges for now, but there’s an investigation going on. We’re going to check everything concerning this event.”
