More Cotham Hill/Whiteladies Road lorry/bike crash photos

This is the rest of the photo set.

It's pretty depressing to see this, especially on a road that is almost entirely given over to students walking and cycling in to college on.

The lorry was turning in from Whiteladies Road -probably heading inbound (left turn), though it may have turned right.

This is the view from the builders' merchants; there's a small lane before the entrance. The parked cars on the side make getting into the building site a fairly tricky turn; presumably it had to to swing out wide, and somehow a bike ended up on the inside of the bend.

AY56AEP, for the databases

Note this closing scene here: the road is closed and yet still a white van tries to get past the police car; ends up being waved down by the police and made to/helped to back out onto Whiteladies Road, then go down a block before turning off. This may answer some questions about delivery van driver literacy, else "Police Road Closed" doesn't apply if you are just on your way through quickly.

Looks like the cronies on the Evening Post website have already decided to blame the cyclist without a) witnessing the incident or b) knowing the facts. Typical anti-cycling scum
