Default Pedestrians need more hi-vis and walking helmets

QUOTE:

An 88-year-old woman is in a serious condition in hospital after being hit by a cyclist, police have said.

The woman was walking along Cowling Brow in Chorley, Lancashire, when she was struck at about 18:30 BST on Friday.

She fell to the ground and suffered head, chest and pelvic injuries.

Police said the road was closed for *THREE HOURS* (EMPHASIS MINE) while investigations took place. They appealed for witnesses to contact them.

I know this road and it is not a good road.
Chances are the cyclist was going hell for leather and not looking where he
was going.
If the lady dies I hope this **** on a bike is brought to law as a driver
would be.


Do we know who is guilty party is yet?

Hopefully a court can answer your question.
In the mind of the cyclist the guilty party must be the lady off 88 years
who sprinted into the road and into the path of the cyclist.

These old biddies are secretly vicious old battleaxes - did you not see Ena Sharples and Nora Batty? As for the audiences in wrestling...

You mean he will be able to say "It was a momentary lapse in concentration", and get away with it.

That looks like a 30mph road which means a typical law abiding motorist would be doing 40-45mph, I doubt the cyclist was travelling faster than that.
