Cyclist injured in Thebarton crash
Posted by SAPOL on 16-Apr-2020
A cyclist is being treated in the Royal Adelaide Hospital for a serious leg injury, after a collision with a truck at Thebarton this morning.
Just after 7am on Thursday 16-Apr-2020, police and other emergency services were called to Port Rd near the intersection of George St. A truck had truck collided with a cyclist, dragging the cyclist under the truck for about 40 metres along Port Rd.
The cyclist, a 22yo woman from Malvern, was treated at the scene before being taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with a serious leg injury which is not considered non life-threatening.
West bound traffic on Port Rd was congested for a short time, before the scene was cleared.
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
Note: How terrifying for the cyclist! Dragged 40 metres under a truck!
I hope she fully recovers, although sounds like rehab will take time.
