A 24-year-old cyclist from Brandon is dead after a collision on Highway 1 Wednesday night.

The cyclist and a vehicle collided near the community of Austin.

The investigation has determined that a 54-year-old driver from Regina was driving in the left lane when he suddenly saw a cyclist in the same lane and collided with him.

Officials believe the dark lighting conditions and the fact that the cyclist was wearing dark clothes were factors in the collision and that alcohol and speed were not involved.

The investigation continues.
