cyclist killed by Mercedes driver

THE devastated family of the Italian cyclist killed in an accident on the A303 have issued a desperate appeal for information.

Carlo Morato, 37, from Padova, Italy, was cycling eastbound just before 3pm when he was hit from behind by a Mercedes ML280 car.

Vehicular cyclists using main roads may be interested to know that the Mercedes ML280 has a top speed of 127mph, which can be reached in just 9.8 seconds after you’ve turned on the ignition.
