A cyclist is in life-threatening condition after he was struck by a tractor-trailer in Mississauga.

It happened around 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday near Dixie Road and Midway, just south of Derry Road.

The cyclist was heading southbound on Dixie when he was struck by a tractor-trailer.

Police said the truck remained at the scene.

This comes one day after another cyclist was hit by a truck in Toronto’s Little Portugal neighbourhood.

That cyclist suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
