Comment from Sunday Mail about the accident. Does this not show one of the reasons why cycle lanes can be MORE dangerous. "Driver In Cycle Star Tragedy Speaks Out Jan 20 2008 By Alan Dow Exclusive Driver In Cycle Star Tragedy Speaks Out A DRIVER involved in the crash that killed cycling star Jason MacIntyre spoke of his horror yesterday. Robert MacTaggart, 35, was at the wheel of his council van when it collided with Jason's bike. The shocked driver was breath-tested and quizzed by police but yesterday pleaded his innocence over the death of the 34-year-old Olympic hopeful. Jason, who had eight-year-old twin girls to wife Caroline, won 13 Scottish titles, three British championships and cycled at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Robert said: "My heart and that of my wife goes out to Jason's wife and children. It is a loss they'll never get over." Robert heard a loud noise on the A82 on the outskirts of Fort William on Tuesday, after making a right turn into a side road to a council depot. He said: "I had just turned off when I heard a bang and felt the pick-up jolt slightly after an impact on the rear nearside. "People assumed Jason was on the main A82 road but I don't believe he was. "I think he was on the recently completed cycle path which runs parallel to the road and a few yards off it. "The short road into the council depot cuts across the cycle track at right angles and I would have expected any cyclists to watch for vehicles on this road and wait until they have passed. I can only assume Jason did not notice me swinging off the main road into the side road. "I was stunned. It was awful and I was totally shocked at being part of it. "A couple of other council vans were leaving the depot and the guys and myself helped Jason into the recovery position." The ambulance was quickly on the scene but Jason later died in hospital. Yesterday the accident scene had become a shrine to Jason with flowers and brightly coloured cycling shirts. Messages included: "May the wind always be behind you" and "Jason, you were a legend". He broke fellow Scots cyclist Graham Obree's 10-mile time trial record last year and was preparing for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Married dad-of-one Robert passed a breath test and has not been charged. Robert, originally from Glasgow but living in Fort Wiliam, said: "I don't want to cause further upset but I don't believe there was anything wrong with my driving." More than £12,000 has been raised to provide for Jason's family whose funeral takes place in Fort William on Wednesday. Apolice spokesman said: "A 35-year-old man is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal."
