We were driving back from the stadium when this happened literally seconds before we got to the traffic lights. We didn't see it in detail as we were a short distance back, I actually got out of our car to see what was happening as the traffic was not moving and we unsure why, I am glad we weren't any earlier as I would hate to have seen this tragedy as it happened or for our baby girl who was in the car to have seen it. My heart goes out to the family of the poor soul that has passed away today, there were plenty of people at the scene taking care of the casualty and it was only later upon reading this website that we learned they had died, horrible horrible news, so sad.

Cyclists must remember never to go down beside a lorry if there is any chance they are turning.

There is nothing in the article to suggest that is what has happened. It should be worth noting that only around 40-50% (I forget the exact figures, its on the TRL or DFT website I think) of large vehicle and cyclist collisions were the result of filtering cyclists. One poor lady in London for example was overtaken and "hooked" and another was rear ended by a skip lorry.
.
Its not always clear cut and the Police will investigate.
.
I will say that on the various cycle forums there are links to surveys being run by traffic police on this very subject.If all cycle users could google: "Andy Rose
Detective Inspector
Head of Collision Investigation Unit
Alperton Traffic Unit" for the Bikeradar or cyclechat forums they will find links to these surveys.
.
Cyclists will also find advice on how to avoid certain dangers.
.
Lastly I offer my condolences to the man's family.

please dont think when you read this i am putting her at fault as i am not.
I drive a car around southampton and i must say "i am not suprised to read this" As we have had a number of accidents, which sadly ends in the death of the cyclist, sometimes i see it to be the cyclist who was stupid and othertimes the Vehicle, but it was only yesterday I saw a cyclist ride though a red light that i was stopped at so it makes you wonder!! RIP

Rest in Peace. This is truly very sad and my thoughts are with the family.

With regards to the post above I don't think now is the time nor the place to start criticising other cyclists behaviour. Whenever I hear of a car accident I don't take the opportunity to point out the number of cars I see run red lights at pedestrian crossings.

Have some tact.
