Video shows cyclist getting doored on Toronto street

It seems like there's a new video showing a bike accident nearly every week. In the latest one, we can see a cyclist getting doored by a truck on Adelaide Street West - a street that actually has separated bike lanes.

As CBC News reports, Chelsea Mobishwash was biking to work on August 26 when the truck opened its door in front of her. She was able to obtain video footage of the incident from a nearby store and posted it on YouTube.

Mobishwash is now trying to promote safety measure for cyclists and says there needs to better bike-related infrastructure in the city.
