    Cyclist hit by a bus is still recovering in hospital

    By David Brown on October 30, 2014

    A cyclist who was injured in a collision with a bus near Richmond Bridge last month is still in hospital. ‘Cyclist hit by a bus’ is not a headline anyone wants to read, but for the 21-year-old cyclist involved that very situation became a brutal reality last month. The accident occurred on 7th September and the man was critically injured at the time. He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital immediately after the accident and remains there today.

    It appears he suffered a head injury and took some time to regain consciousness. It was only this week that the police announced he had left the intensive therapy unit and had been transferred to the major trauma unit at the same hospital. No other information was given with regard to the nature of the man’s injuries.

    According to information given by Tim Lennon, who is with the Richmond Cycling Campaign, the junction at which the accident happened is an extremely busy one. It would be dangerous for cyclists and always sees a lot of traffic. When a cyclist hit by a bus receives injuries as bad as these, it surely highlights how much work could be done to improve busy junctions for cyclists.

    How serious can a cyclist’s collision with another vehicle be?

    This accident shows just how severe injuries can be for cyclists when they are involved in a collision with another vehicle. It is rare that anyone in a car or other vehicle would be injured, and yet for the cyclist it is a very different picture entirely. Even when a helmet is worn the cyclist can sustain serious injuries. Care and attention is required by cyclists but also by every other road user, in order to reduce the number of serious accidents that occur.
