Woman cyclist killed by hit and run lorry driver

Yet another left-turning lorry/cyclist fatality? From this photograph it looks as if it might well have been.

A female cyclist has died after a truck smash on Stanningley Road at Bramley.

The collision happened at around 10.30am on Tuesday, July 28.

The 27-year-old pedal cyclist was hit by a red DAF wagon and suffered serious injuries, police said.

A 59-year-old man has been arrested for failing to stop at the scene.
