Another lorry driver kills another cyclist

A grim footnote to my post yesterday about the road haulage industry:

A 29-year-old Marlborough man has been killed in a crash on the A338 near Tidworth.

The man, who has not been named, was cycling from Tidworth to Marlborough at around 7.15pm on Wednesday evening when he was overtaken by an articulated lorry driven by a 55-year-old man from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

Police are still investigating how the collision 200 metres north of the Leckford crossroads took place, but the pedal cyclist suffered serious head injuries and died at the scene.
