Cyclist knocked down and pinned under car is 'lucky to be alive'

The Argus: Cyclist knocked down and pinned under car is 'lucky to be alive' Cyclist knocked down and pinned under car is 'lucky to be alive'

This cyclist, knocked down and pinned under a car for nearly 30 minutes, incredibly suffered just cuts and severe bruising.

Justin Futers walked away from this horror crash after being run over just feet from a railway crossing.

He was dragged beneath the car and trapped under the bonnet. He was just centimetres away from being crushed beneath the vehicle’s front wheels.

The 47-year-old said: “My head and my face were scraping the tarmac so it was pretty close. I didn’t shut my eyes and think ‘this is it’, although it could have been.

“The weight of the engine was right on my shoulders, there was a quarter of an inch between me and the car, it was that tight.”

He hopes these shocking images of his ordeal will be a warning to all road users to take extra care.

He fears a recent spate of cyclist fatalities in London could spread to Sussex.

The incident happened just before 1pm on Saturday when Mr Futers was hit by a blue Chevrolet as he pulled out from Langbury Lane in Ferring into Ferring Street.

Fortunately among the passers-by was a former paramedic trainer, an exfirefighter and an off-duty police officer who all came to his aid before the emergency services took over.

The self-employed painter and decorator was released and taken to Worthing Hospital where he learned he had escaped with no broken bones.

Mr Futers, from Sussex Street in Littlehampton, added the psychological impact of the crash had not yet dawned on him, but vowed to be back on his bike within a month.

He said: “I have a feeling the car was an automatic which might have saved me, had it been a manual the car would still have some inertia if the clutch was engaged.

“I can’t remember what I was thinking at the time other than ‘there is a car on top of me’.”

Eye witness Mike Brampton from Worthing said: “I came up the ramp towards the crossing and there buried underneath the car was this figure dressed in red.

“My initial reaction was ‘oh my God what have we here’ but then I heard an utterance under the car from the cyclist.

“I was relieved that he could speak.

“That could have been a horrific accident, fortunately Justin got off incredibly lightly.”

A South East Coast Ambulance Service said they were called at 12.53pm on Saturday and sent two ambulances to the scene.

A man in his 40s was taken to Worthing Hospital while the driver, a 76- year-old man from Ferring, was checked over at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.

We do not have the driver's story. But any cyclist who enters from a side street has to give way to vehicles already travelling on the road.
The driver should be praised for not squashing him outright - he must have done the best emergency stop possible and saved this silly cyclist's life.

Age has nothing to do with it. People on cycles of any age are not immune to stupidity.

So its always the cyclist faulf then. I'm a cyclist and I consider my self a very safe rider. I stop at red lights etc. Wear a crash hat, my bikes have flashing as well as static lights and the amount of times I have almost been knocked down by both so called good drivers (bus drivers. Taxis etc) that claim to have not seen me. Or the best one was "oh sorry I wasnt expecting you to stop at the red light"
I agree there are good and bad on both sides and it realky gets my back uo when I see a cyclist going though a ref light or out at night with no lights stc. I believe it makes the rest of us goid ones a target for all the p##### off motorists out there.

If there was an off duty Police Officer present, did he ask Mr Futers for his name & date of birth, run a PNC check on him and then ask him for his ethnic origin for monitoring purposes? All before arresting him on suspicion of obstructing a public highway?

(Sorry, but I have a real personal downer on Sussex Police!)

That is actually quite an awkward junction- almost as bad as the one by the war memorial. To my knowledge there have been at least four serious traffic incidents in that 100 metre stretch within 4 months.

Car owners were quick to condemn all other cyclists, giving anecdotes about red lights and observations about Vehicle excise duty being a justifiable conduit for running over anybody who dared use a road that wasnt in a car, regardless that road tax was abolished in 1937 and Hybrid car owners don't pay any road tax whatsoever.

Nigel Farage was unavailable for comment, but probably would have said send em back,bl00dy cyclists.

He also blamed recent Romanian visitors, as did all the car users.

The cyclist pulled out of a side road & was hit by the car. Who failed to give way to traffic on the main road? Obviously, on this occasion, the cyclist must have misjudged the traffic on the main road.
I am more concerned with the reporter who claimed that the cyclist was trapped under the bonnet of the car, whilst also stating that the cyclist was only centimetres from the wheels as well. Mr Vowles, the bonnet goes ABOVE the engine, the poor man was under the engine.

The costs of the private car to society are enormous and can be argued are subsidised but I agree they are presently unavoidable, at least in the short term until alternatives come into use.

However you are wholly wrong on cycle insurance. It is very cheap and very easy to obtain because the damage/risks are so low. In fact third party is very often a 'free' benefit with cycling organisations memberships, while many people are unaware that they are covered for cycling through household policies anyway.
I support 3rd party for those riding bikes, but the costs iinvolved in making it compulsory simply in administration and collection would far FAR outweigh the income from premiums.

It is despicable to say deaths are acceptable.
