Dangerous cycling in New Zealand

"She was just cycling along when she was hit by the truck whose driver states that he just didn't see her," she said in an entry yesterday.

"No word of condolence or apology whatsoever from him or the company he's driving for."

Ms Pusch was the second German tourist killed while cycling on New Zealand roads in under a year.

Last March, Stefan Stoermer, 38, of Frankfurt,
was hit by a logging truck on State Highway 2, on the outskirts of Te Puki.
