Cyclist killed by collision with cement lorry, Old Street
9.04.09 by Buffalo Bill
The incident took place less 200 metres from where Harriet Tory was killed by a left-turning lorry in 2005. According to these reports, and what I can glean from BBC London traffic reports, the lorry was turning left from Old Street into Aldersgate Street, and the female victim died at the scene. But these are unconfirmed reports.
If confirmed, this would be the 3rd cyclist to have been killed in London by a lorry so far in 2009.
Updated: Just reading a report that another female cyclist was killed yesterday on Elephant and Castle roundabout yesterday. The other vehicle was a flat-bed articulated lorry. That would make 4 London cyclists killed by collisions with heavy goods vehicles (also known as large goods vehicles or HGV/LGVs) so far in 2009, 3 of whom were female.
