The newspaper says the woman "is in a serious but stable condition".

Not sure how a person on a bicycle can inflict what sounds like a fair amount of damage, and not be aware of it. Not ok.

In a serious but stable condition after she "made it" to RPH.

In saying that...I see three types of tools each and everyday so I'm not that surprised.

tool type 1 - The cyclist who persist in riding through red lights on the terrace through swarms of pedestrians.
tool type 2 - The cyclist who cycles down the pavement through swarms of pedestrians.
tool type 3 - The pedestrian who casually struts across the road at the dome cafe/paragon area after coming from the bus station.

What!? The West didn't allow comments on this article? Their gutter trawling incendiary instincts are slipping.

You would think an impact that would cause serious injuries to a pedestrian would at least knock you off too. Posibly resulting in decent damage to you too. I would suspect CCTV footage may help in this case depending on where on the Terrace it was.

The women just needs to hit her head on the ground to suffer serious injuries. This does not mean the cyclist has to come off for it to happen.

Not a good look at all :( Hope the lady recovers well and quickly.

Our office admin lady thought that it was worth putting out an "office non-work-related safety alert" email about the incident.

Not sure what her motivation was. I haven't asked her yet if she would have done the same for a car hit and run.

Maybe it was remind people to look where they are going when walking/driving/cycling, not to txt when walking/driving /cycling, not to listen to an iDevice when doing said activities, and to check before "changing lanes" or stopping in the middle of "traffic" whether that be on the road, psp, or footpath?

You know, pay attention to your surroundings and act accordingly? Or maybe it was just warning people about cyclists who can't read minds? Or maybe not.

Sigh. At least hit and runs get reported fairly evenly in the press regardless of the vehicle involved.

I sincerely hope she is ok, just as I hope anyone involved in an altercation with any vehicle is ok. No one deserves a hospital trip for anything. I'm scared of them and have a habit of passing out while in them (yes, even as a visitor) so don't think anyone deserves to end up in one.
