London Police says a male cyclist has been killed after a crash involving a truck.

The incident took place on Adelaide Street, just north of Dundas Street, about noon on Wednesday.

Police say the adult male cyclist was travelling southbound when struck by the vehicle. The man was rushed to hospital but died of his injuries.

Adelaide Street was closed in both directions for several hours between Dundas Street and Queens Avenue while the London Police Service Traffic Management Unit investigated.

The death comes during London's cycling week, a time when safety and bike awareness are front-and-centre. 

Another cyclist, 85-year old Tae-Khun 'Thomas' Ha, was killed in January on Dundas and Hale Streets. 

In that case, the driver left the scene prompting a search that lasted 2 months.
