New left turning lorry/cyclist collision

A CYCLIST may be left in a wheelchair after he was involved in a collision with an articulated lorry in Aberdeen.“Both the cyclist and the lorry looked like they were turning left into Hutcheon Street when it happened.”

And in Portsmouth

A CYCLIST could be paralysed after a collision with a car left him with serious injuries. The 48-year-old man was trapped under the vehicle and suffered serious head, back and chest injuries and a possible fractured spine. His condition was so bad, he had to be airlifted to hospital.

The driver of the car, an 82-year-old man from Gosport, has been questioned by police, but has not been charged.
