Police News updates here:
My heart breaks for their family.
Oh man....so sad. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. That road is on a GW route...has shaken me up reading about this.
When we find out more GW could dedicate a memorial ride to the spot where it happened!
Might want to check with his family first.
The thing that annoyed me about the television report on channel 7 was the line: the cyclist collided with a truck. FFS, that makes it sound as though the cyclist ran into the side of the truck or something, like it was the cyclist's fault. Surely it's the the truck that hit the cyclist, regardless of who was at fault.
In anycase, dem roads is dangerous places. Take care lads and lasses.
And in this case, condolences to the family of the poor soul who lost his life today.
Little extra info this morning - both were traveling in the same direction. Maybe, just maybe A Metre Matters might have saved the cyclists life. Condolences to the family.
Too right mate! Especially with a truck which can suck cyclists towards it as it goes by!
I've seen many incidents where a truck in an 80+ zone has driver past a parked car with the door ajar and the force of the air from the truck has literally ripped the door open so hard that it damages the car.
It certainly makes me question my sanity re riding down Port Road to get to the norther expressway cycle path.
