2012-02-01 - Rider Down, Old Street and Clerkenwell Road
Just come through Old Street, through Clerkenwell Road. 4 Fire engines, 2 ambulances & police in attendance. Looks like a rider's been sandwiched between a taxi and a tipper truck heading in the direction away from Old St. Bike was still there, mangled between the two vehicles. Think cyclist was still there but didn't want to look too closely. Grim. Thoughts are with the cyclist.

My wife saw this at about 8.40am. It was a lady, about 30. She was on a Cycle Hire bike. She was sandwiched between two wheels as high as her head and despite this managed to crawl over her bars to escape. She was in shock and terrified, as was the HGV driver, who rushed to her to make sure she was OK. As did so many passing cyclists. A highly traumatic near miss. Good to hear she is OK. Well done to all those who came to her aid. Did anyone see if the taxi driver got involved in helping?
