Cyclist dies after crash in Norfolk
30-year-old Zak Carr, of Attleborough, UK, has died after being hit by a car on the A11 motorway in Norfolk. Carr was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital following the crash, but died soon after. The crash occurred on the northbound carriageway of the trunk road between Wymondham and the Thickthorn roundabout at about 7:30am BST.

Carr, well known in the cycling community for his records and championships in time trials and on the track, was also starting to make his mark racing for Great Britain as a pilot for disabled athletes, and was planning to compete at the 2008 Paralympics. Dave Mellor, team manager at the recent European championships in Holland, said of Carr's death, "I know he was enjoying his time with us, as we were enjoying our time with him. Fate has decided that this period has been very short but we will remember this time fondly and will try and carry on Zak's infectious enthusiasm for all things cycling."

Everyone at Cyclingnews would like to extend our sincere condolences to Carr's partner Bev, and his family and friends.

It would be nice to get more information on this. Who was at fault? Was the driver charged, etc.
