• Have you read the comment from Hackney Hive beneath the article?
    looks like the press complaints people might like to see that.
    Outrageous

  • Best wishes to the injured rider.
    I think we should not comment further on Gobby Wench's posts but rather just report them to Velocio.

  • too much, too many.
    best wishes if family reads this thread.

  • Always sad to hear.

  • Hey all,

    I've just got back from the hospital. He's still critical, but is steady.

    Thanks for all of your messages. I showed them to his Mum, and she appreciated it.

    Don't worry too much about the press. Slightly amusing that lgfss has been used in this way, but it's the least of our worries!

    Best,

    Joe

  • Hey Joe. Hope everyone is pulling through. Today has been a rollercoaster. See you tomorrow. Love to everyone.

    Thanks everyone for your positivity

  • Hi all,

    I have a favour to ask.

    Did anyone witness this, or know of anyone who witnessed the accident?

    The Police don't have any CCTV, and are struggling for witnesses.

    Let me know.

    Joe

  • thanks for keeping us posted peujoe.

    i went to the gym tonight and thought of dan and his family and friends whilst running on the treadmill.

    really praying that he pulls through.

    prayers for doctors and nurses too.

    walked pass there this morning and had a good look for cctv. there's two big posts with big cameras on but they might not see the crossing itself, could be worth a look though.

    I find it weird though that such a big crossing isn't covered? Isn't there cameras in the lights etc to catch RLJ cars?

    Think it'd be a good idea to put up notes in the area asking witnesses to come forth. I live just around the corner so can help with putting them up, just pm me or post here if I can do anything

  • Think it'd be a good idea to put up notes in the area asking witnesses to come forth.

    fair enough. isnt that the po po's job tho? suprised they haven't put up one of those yellow sandwich boards yet. or have they?

    glad to hear yer man's on the mend.

  • I certainly is the police's job, but history tells us it's a good idea to give them a hand in these cases

  • indeedikins. just make sure they do as well tho.

  • Thanks for update. Hope he is pulling through

    Worth quoting again. Witnesses are absolutely crucial for making sure that this has a good resolution. Come forward if you saw it.

  • +1 re witnesses.

    It's worth anyone involved with this also checking for private security cameras (shop fronts, the station, the pub overlooking the junction etc) - if you think they might cover the junction get the Fuzz to request the footage.

    On the matter of witnesses, in case anyone is reading this but lurking, if they saw something who should they contact?

    Lastly, I notice that there have been no arrests http://www.hackneygazette.co.uk:80/news/­no_arrests_after_dalston_junction_cyclis­t_collision_1_792645 Isn't the standard procedure these days for the driver to be arrested on the spot and later bailed in order for them to be breathalysed and for their time sheets etc checked? Just nervous as we all know that standard operating procedure isn't always followed in these cases.

  • terrible stuff all round

    mile end road is a bit of a horror show for accidents

    really pissed off when they took away the bike lane and replaced it with a barclays blue streak of piss that gets ignored by drivers

  • I'm sorry but he fought and fought. He didn't make it it. We love you Dan.

  • RIP. My condolences

  • Terrible news. My condolences to a fellow cyclist.

  • Rest in Peace Dan…

    Weazlepopper, Joe, Dan's family and friends, you're in our thoughts, there's a lot of love going out to you guys right now

  • My sincere condolences to Dan's family.

  • Oh man, what a shocking thing.
    Sincere condolences
    What can we do to help?

  • Really sorry to hear this, rest in peace Dan

  • fuck, rip dude :-(

  • +1 too all of the above.
    sad news. :-(
