A lorry driver hit a cyclist in City Road this afternoon.

Caught the aftermath of a horrible bike / HGV accident on City Road. It’s the bit where cyclists and buses can go straight on but trucks and cars have to swing left. Horrible design.

City Road was closed in both directions but has since been reopened to traffic. Regan King, who witnessed the aftermath of the incident, told the Gazette: “When I saw the truck I thought, maybe it hit a cyclist. I looked under and actually saw the bicycle under the second left wheel.

I don’t know how she survived.”
