Cyclist tumbles to death off bridge
By Oliver MOORE, Page A3
A cyclist riding on the sidewalk of a tall bridge in Mississauga, just west of Toronto, lost control of his bike and tumbled over the railing to his death, police said yesterday.
The lifeless body of Andrzej SACAWA was found on the banks of the Credit River, 28 metres below Burnhamthorpe Road. His mountain bike remained atop the busy bridge, relatively undamaged, and police are looking for witnesses: to the freak accident.
"Unknown is how he lost control of his bicycle," said Peel Regional Police media relations officer Peter BRANDWOOD. " Somehow he struck the railing of the bridge."
Burnhamthorpe Road is almost always busy and the sidewalk over the bridge has been designated a paved bike lane, said cycling advocate Darren STEHR. It's not an approach he approves of.
"We know riding on the sidewalk is dangerous, if you look at City of Toronto stats we know that's where a lot of accidents happen," said Mr. STEHR, speaking on behalf of Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists.
"This cyclist had two choices, either go over the side of the bridge or go into traffic, neither is very good."
Mr. SACAWA was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel.
"It would appear that the guy lost control of the bike, unfortunately, and the only place he had to fall was over the bridge," Mr. BRANDWOOD said.
Southern Ontario was experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures yesterday, and Mr. SACAWA was among cyclists across the region who took the opportunity to stretch their legs.
It is unknown how far Mr. SACAWA had pedaled before his accident. But according to CTV News, the father of two lived only a few kilometres from the scene.
Mr. SACAWA was riding west on the sidewalk on the northern side of the bridge -- that is, with the flow of traffic -- when the accident occurred.
The railing he went over stands a bit more than one metre high, roughly the height of a tall man's waist.

Cyclist falls to death from bridge
By Bob MITCHELL, Staff Reporter
A 46-year-old man is dead following a bizarre bicycle accident on a bridge in Mississauga.
According to witnesses, Andrzej SACAWA lost control yesterday morning as he was riding along a sidewalk on a bridge on Burnhamthorpe Rd. over the Credit River -- and then tumbled over the railing to his death.
Police said SACAWA's handlebars somehow became lodged in the railing as he was riding across the bridge that crosses the Credit River in the area between Mississauga Rd. and Creditview Rd.
Suddenly, he lost control of his mountain bike, then tumbled over the handlebars and fell about 28 metres to his death.
A coroner pronounced him dead at the scene, police said.
"The railing is apparently quite low if you're on a bike," Peel Constable Kathy WEYLIE said.
Police officials said no other people or vehicles were involved in the bridge tragedy.
