Default Another woman mown down by a cyclist

A cyclist was arrested after a pensioner was left fighting for her life
in a crash in Oxford Street.
The woman, in her seventies, suffered serious head injuries in the crash
near Bond Street station at 4.30pm yesterday. She was taken to hospital
where she remained today with “life- threatening” injuries. Her family
were at her side.
Scotland Yard said the cyclist stopped at the scene. He was arrested
after checks showed he was wanted in connection with an unrelated
alleged offence involving criminal damage.
The cyclist was seen arguing with officers as hordes of shoppers
watched. He shouted to the half-dozen officers trying to restrain him:
“You’re breaking my arm, what are you holding me for? You are trying to
make a show of me. That’s what police do.”

"After apparently refusing to get into a police car, the cyclist was
escorted into a police van and taken to a station, two and a half hours
after the collision"
The gross stupidity of cyclists never ceases to amaze me.
Low life scum.

If there were hordes of shoppers there should be plenty of witnesses to testify the pedestrian walked into the path of a moving vehicle without a helmet.
The fracas and arrest have nothing to do with the incident.
Besides, I thought cyclists always fled the scene.

All of the shoppers on the footpath should be looking out for ******s riding
bicycles and mowing down old people?

The **** resisted arrest, you pillock

Besides, I thought cyclists always fled the scene.

Mostly they do.

****! You are trolling and I fell for it. Please tell me that you are
serious about your comments and that I did not fall for replying to your
****.

Come off it. You can easily see his point. What right did the police
have to arrest him? The law doesn't apply to cyclists.

That wouldn't surprise me. He might well be well advised to advertise
for cyclists to turn up and testify...

However...

The report says:

"Witnesses described seeing two cyclists turning on to Oxford Street,
with one striking the woman as she crossed the road".

When you turn into a street - no matter what vehicle you are using - you
are obliged to accord precedence to pedestrians already crossing the
street into which you are turning.

You should already have known this, but it comes as no surprise to
observe that you didn't.

The fracas and arrest have nothing to do with the incident.


It is co-lateral evidence which goes to the issue of the defendant's
demeanour and intentions, as well as his credibility. It may certainly
be the subject of separate charges.

Besides, I thought cyclists always fled the scene.


He prolly had a buckled front wheel and was intent on getting the victim
to pay for it?

Did this incident occur on the footway or the carriageway?

And?

Evidence?

Happily a woman has the incident on camera, and there must be plenty of
cameras in that area in any case, so the cyclist may be vindicated yet,
but not on the other charges he faces.

If that's what happened, there is nothing that can "vindicate" him. He
would have been obliged to give way (accord precedence) to any
pedestrian already crossing the street into which he was turning,
stopping if necessary in order to do so.

He was wanted in connection with an unrelated alleged offence
involving criminal damage, apparently - it's all in the report.

I think that is what's called being facetious.
