Cyclists injured on Commonwealth Avenue bridge

Postby Ross » Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:01 am

Two cyclists have been taken to hospital after an incident on Commonwealth Avenue on Monday morning.

ACT Ambulance paramedics attended the scene during Canberra’s peak hour, and treated two cyclists, one for minor injuries and another for fractures.

Both were transported to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.

Details surrounding the incident remain unclear. ACT Policing were not called to attend.

I heard one of the ACTVets came off this morning, not sure where though. Probable fractured ribs, taken away in an ambulance.

I passed that one, but was on the western side of the bridge going north so i couldn't see much. Ambulance and police were both there and i expect the bodies were in the back already. it was between the regatta point exit and the bridge.

Update : wasn't the ACTVets rider, that happened elsewhere.
