Just seen this on the BBC now.
Just watching the Olympics and heard the news of this sad death announced by Gary Lineker.
Very sad news, another cyclists life cut short RIP
Gary Lineker just announced that a cyclist has been killed in Hackney by an Olympic bus. Pronounced dead at the scene.
Did anyone know him ? Sympathies to his family.
Sympathies. I cross posted at the same time.
What will this mean for Londoners though? Will they abolish the lanes or just put it down to another accident that was unfortunate?
Very sad R.I.P
That would probably depend on what happened, rather than a knee jerk response within 2 hours of the incident.
I don't see anything that states it was in an olympic lane.
It was an Olympic bus so it stands to reason it probably was in a Zil Lane.
Happened at the jct of Ruckholt lane and the A12. Press are not saying that the driver has been arrested which is interesting. From reading about previous incidents drivers of such collisions are usually arrested.
It's a weird one, what is effectively a slip coming off/joining the A12 you would expect no danger.
RIP the cyclist.
Apparently he went on the inside of the bus before it made a turn:
Oh my word.... I don't know what to say.
F**k me, that is horrible.
Kudos to that man for saving a man from dying alone, one of life's greatest fears personally.
