Incident with a Lorry at Holborn on the A40 just off Newton Street.
Just been confirmed as a fatality. AND on cycle to work day too.
Very, very sad news.
Awful news. RIP.
Shit news. RIP rider and thoughts to his family and friends.
So terrible, RIP
Rest in peace.
Terrible, this is on my commute and at the time I usually pass through, often see the same faces time after time there, on another day I might have been riding alongside you, rest in peace.
RIP Rider. Tragic!
A HGV kills a cyclist, again.
These stories are hitting me harder every time.
So so sorry for the rider and everyone who knew him.
Rest in peace dear rider
So sad. RIP.
Saw the vehicles heading in attendance as its close to work, made me pause.
Sad to hear the news.
This is soooo shitty. That is my route. Heart goes out to the fam. I was there 30 mins prior. RIP
RIP cyclist, condolences to family and friends.
Horrible news - RIP
I walked past this, this morning as I was heading out to a meeting (my office is 100m away) and it looked really bad. There's a traffic pinch point there with a very tight 90-degree turn for a cycle only path running counter to a one-way street and it's always looked dodgy to me.
Gutted to hear it was fatal.
RIP rider. My thoughts are definitely with all those affected.
RIP. Condolences to all who knew him.
RIP to the rider and thoughts with all those who knew them.
Hitting me close as I must have rode through minutes before this happened as I work round the corner. Colleague was there at the immediate aftermath I believe and she sounded quite shaken by it.
The number of people taking pictures of the scene as I walked past for lunch really hasn't helped my mind either.
Rest in Peace.
RIP, this is a main route for couriers coming from the city I used to ride it 10/20 times a day, I've had and witnessed so many close calls there, even on that terrible cycle lane @Soul mentioned.
