Cyclist killed by lorry in Southampton

Some of the comments to this story suggest that the victim was a woman cyclist killed by a left-turning HGV. However, the details at present are very, very sketchy.

A CYCLIST has been killed following a collision with an articulated lorry close to St Mary's Stadium in Southampton.

A 59-year-old man was driving the silver Volvo heavy goods vehicle when the accident happened at the junction of Prince's Street and Northam Road at 11.35am this morning.

The cyclist was taken to Southampton General Hospital where they died at midday.
