    Cyclist kills Bus Passenger

    I know it seems bizarre but the link below relates the incident

    I could not believe this when I heard it today on the radio- but a Cyclist pulled out in front of a bus- causing the driver to brake and one of the passengers fell and has since died. Police want to contact the cyclist and they have a pic of him from CCTV.

    Initially I thought that it was a minor situation blown up into something more serious- but with someone dying in such a situation- you can bet that cyclists will be getting a lot of blame for car accidents in future.

    They did not say if the woman was standing or sitting. It is odd that they would take a dead woman to the hospital for treatment, she is dead so why report that she had a broken arm.

    It was a second passenger with the broken arm.

    And over here- There is always the chance that resussitation can be achieved so all accident victims are taken to Hospital, and it must be a Doctor that pronounces Death. Paramedics are not qualified to pronounce death so will not and cannot take the chance that the patient could have survived if they got medical attention quicker. May seem wierd- but several "Dead" Patients have survived incidents.

    You must have heard it somewhere else that the cyclist pulled out in front of the bus. I don't see it in the article. If British buses have sideways seats like many here, I can see this happening to a seated passenger.
