Motorway traffic at a standstill

First published in News Daily Echo: Photograph of the Author by , Eastleigh Chief Reporter

A CYCLIST involved in a collision with a car on a busy Southampton road has died.

Greg Dear, 27, of Cliff Road, Freemantle, was rushed to Southampton General Hospital after a crash involving an orange Fiat Punto in Millbrook Road West shortly after 7.20am yesterday.

He was taken to a specialist neurology centre but died last night.

The 29-year-old woman driver of the Punto was been arrested in connection on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and dangerous driving. She was released on police bail until January.

She was uninjured in the crash that brought rush hour traffic in the city to a standstill.

The cyclist and driver were both from Southampton.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact Operation Carm at Eastleigh on 0845 0454545.

Being a cyclist, this story is close to my heart and my condolences go out to the cyclist's family. I commute by cycle and am cut-up/ignored by drivers daily...who seem not to care- i can only presume it is because they are safe inside a metal box. Whilst I can't comment on the incident itself, the fact that the driver has was arrested under multiple charges- including dangerous driving, speaks volumes. Unfortunately this incident is not the first and certainly will not be the last.

Gorf, sadly I feel a helmet would have been of little help here. They're only tested to a standard of 12mph, unlike motorcycle helmets (which is why I wouldnt support new laws until helmets could be improved or changed)

A helmet will help, however, with slower speed impacts and many falls to the road after. My own helmet probably saved me some serious injury when my head bounced off the road so I'm inclined to recommend them.

As SotonResident, I too commute by cycle everyday and each day encounter a close shave. I feel i'm hated by all motorists and pedestrians. People walk out in front of me, cars cut me up or pull out from junctions and nearly hit me. I wear reflective clothing have lights on.
It makes my 7.5 miles such a joy.
Sad news... My heart is with his family.

I too was 1 of the many stuck in this traffic yesterday taking 2 and half hours from Marchwood to the town centre, so kind of guessed would be a fatal accident. My thoughts are with the guys family & friends. Although it seems the woman driver was in the wrong, I dont see how people can comment unless they actually saw the accident happen. Yes alot of drivers are wrong & do ignore cyclists however alot of cyclists can also be in the wrong. Lets not point fingers until the person is charged or the charges are dropped. Again my thoughts are with the guys family & friends.

There was a report a while ago suggesting skid lids made cyclists feel invincible!
Personally I wouldn't ride without one, having come off a few times in traffic. Worst thing though is cyclists wearing no bright or reflective clothing - a couple of quid really can save your life.

It won't be the last fatal accident at that junction - it's only a matter of time before a pedestrian is killed as there is no pedestrian crossing to get across the very fast section of Millbrook road between the speed camera's to get to the Somerfield store , adjacent bus stop , or Football Centre.

My deepest thoughts go out to the family of the cyclist.. And I wonder whether he was 1 of just few sensible cyclists, or truthfully like most turned across the path of the Punto without looking????

As I drive around this city daily. It is a wonder that there are any cyclists alive in this town.

It's a pity that the sensible one's are just few and far between.

Most I see jump off the pavement while cycling at speed on to the road without the slightest look behind as to whats coming up the road behind them. I have also seen many pedestrians jumping out the way of cyclist who think its thier god given right to cycle fast on pavements, and have the right of way.

Only a few weeks back, I saw an accident where a young girl aged about 7 yrs old, was crossing at a traffic light controlled crossing with the green man in her favour, on reaching the other side of the road, was then thrown back into the road, after being hit by a middleaged man riding his bike on the pavement at what must have been at least 20mph... Having hit her, he wobbled up the road, gained control and rode off without even looking back. lucky she was ok...

The latest trick of cyclist is to ride on the road, then on reaching a ZEBRA CROSSING, where they are supposed to dismount, just swinging across the road expecting the vehicles behind them to stop..

Last Sunday on leaving The Range in Winchester Road in my car... Going through a GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHT myself, a cyclist came at speed from my right through a RED LIGHT totally ignoring it, and cut me up.. On sounding my horm me threw abuse, and threatening behaviour at me,, Shouting it would have been your fault if you'd hit me...

With cyclist like this NOT bothering to obey their side of the highway code, it difficult to understand WHY the Police, whom I am sure know whats REALLY going on, are not dealing with it..

I KNOW why???? It's too much paperwork..... SIMPLE answer really ! ! ! ! !

I can appreciate the many hours that people had to wait in the traffic yesterday and how frustrating it would have been but if the roles were reversed and it was your loved one that was fighting for his/her life on the side of the road would you really care about traffic congestion or how late you were for work? I think I can speak for most people when I say - NO! Maybe you should all take a minute to stop and think of the family and friends who are now grieving.

Until it is proven that the cyclist did not skip a red light, swerve in front of the car or do something else silly I think people should lay off blaming the car driver!

That may be so.

However, the prescence of a helmet would indicate that the cyclist took safety seriously.

If a cyclist goes out without safety gear, especially in rush hour, you have got to question their overall attitude to "safe cycling".

What utter nonsense. The implication is that a lawfully acting cyclist is somehow riding in a worse manner because they don't wear a helmet! Absolutely not true.

The helmet issue is really nothing at all to do with this accident which none or few of us know the details of, only that a life has been lost, and for that we should all be truly sad.
