    Furious driver takes out 50-strong cycle pack

    About 50 cyclists - including Australian racer Kate Nichols, who was injured in a 2005 German road racing crash in which a teammate was killed - have been involved in a hit-and-run crash in Sydney this morning.

    The resulting smash forced a semitrailer to lock up, jackknife and screech to a halt behind the cyclists while cars had to swerve to avoid them.

    Also involved in the crash, at 6.35am on Southern Cross Drive, south of the corner of Dacey Avenue in Mascot, were former Olympians Ben Kersten, Kate's father Kevin Nichols, Graeme Brown, Michelle Ferris and Matthew White.

    Witnesses to the crash have told smh.com.au the group of up to 60 professional cyclists were riding south on Southern Cross Drive, just south of Dacey Avenue, Mascot about 6.30am when a driver, agitated with being held up, accelerated in front of the pack and then slammed on his brakes, giving the riders no time to stop.

    "Olds," not news; take a look at the multiple threads already, one here in A&S, and one somewhere else here on BF, perhaps Commuting. I am not meaning to minimize the importance of the incident, of course.

    There is already a lot of discussion on this, please continue in the thread in A&S, for example: Angry driver takes out 50 riders

    I'm closing this thread.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
