Runaway trailer kills cyclist

Postby gclark8 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 2:55 am

An elderly man has died after a runaway trailer pinned him against a fence in Sydney's south-west yesterday.

Police say the 81-year-old was pushing his bicycle along the footpath on Elizabeth Drive at Ashcroft about 1:30pm (AEST) when a box trailer detached from a passing four-wheel drive.

Cheers,
George.

Damn, what a way for yer number to come up. :(
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

RIP Old Timer. I just hope he was gone before he knew what hit him.
