Cyclist hit by driver who 'could not see her'

08 June 2009

Russell Jones & Walker's Sheffield office acted for a cyclist who was struck by a car at a busy junction in Long Eaton. The cyclist was on her way home at dusk when a car pulled out of junction straight on to her. The motorist claimed not to notice her despite the fact she was wearing a fluorescent jacket and her lights were on. This cycling accident should never have happened but unfortunately this is the kind of incident cyclists face all too frequently.
