I was one of the first people to arrive at the scene of an accident today. A man on a bicycle was involved in a collision with a car.
The police, ambulance service and air ambulance were all called. The cyclist suffered a head injury and then a cardiac arrest. Paramedics attempted resuscitation but the man died at the scene.
I don’t want to say much more at this stage until the investigation has been carried out, but this was obviously quite a harrowing experience and brought home the dangers involved with cycling on our roads.
