[VIDEO] Cyclist Charged After Downtown Crash

Ottawa Police have charged a cyclist with running a red light after a crash in the heart of downtown Ottawa.  The cyclist was struck Saturday afternoon at the intersection of Lyon and Laurier Streets. Footage from a dashcam shows a vehicle in the left lane narrowly missing the cyclist, but half a second later the cyclist is hit by another car in the far right lane.  As the video below shows, the cyclist flies in the air.  Incredibly he gets up and is not seriously injured, reportedly only suffering a sore hip.
