A cyclist who was sent to hospital in critical condition Friday evening after being struck by a vehicle in the Town of Mount Royal is out of danger, police say.

Police received a 911 call at around 7 p.m. and responded to the intersection of Portland Avenue and Lombard Crescent where they found the cyclist, a 52-year-old woman, on the ground semi-conscious. She was hospitalized with a serious head injury, said police spokesperson Véronique Dubuc.

The cyclist was on the sidewalk along Lombard when, for an unknown reason, "she lost control of her bike" and collided with a nearby vehicle, according to Dubuc.

On Saturday morning, a police said the cyclist's condition had improved in hospital and she is now in stable condition.

The investigation continues.
