Yesterday morning I think, from richard on hackney Cycling email: I crossed the junction going west at about 0845 this morning. There were community beat officers on each corner of the junction enforcing the ASLs whilst cyclists were waiting at their stop lines. I then went into the security gate makers to obtain a quote; on my exit from their premises a woman approached me with her bike and said there had been "a terrible accident--a cyclist trapped between the rear wheels of a lorry". I went to investigate. The lorry was on the southern side of the junction facing southbound along Kingsland Road. I'm not sure if it had turned left out of Middleton Road--perhaps not, because of the limited headroom. The cyclist was clearly visible under the lorry, his (a man's bike) bent and broken, his white saddle lying on the ground where it had been broken off. The Police were quickly on the scene, so were two fire tenders. It quickly became apparent that the cyclist had been killed. I asked an officer if I should put out an appeal for witnesses--actually, there appeared to be plenty. Nonetheless, if anyone did witness the crash this morning, please do make contact with the Police as soon as possible. It is not clear whether the lorry had turned left or was going straight ahead. From its position in the carriageway it looks like it had turned left--it was over towards the nearside as if going into the bus lane, which it would not have been if going straight ahead--it would have been further out.
