yet another Cyclist/death
Or 'collision' as most of the Uk's press would normally phrase as, to imply the cyclist is normally at fault.

If we had cycle lanes in this backwards country, then James may still be alive.

My condolences to the family of Mr Cramp for their loss in tragic circumstances.

I don't think there is any implication that Mr Cramp was at fault - indeed there is no mention of the circumstances relating to this incident except that a heavy goods vehicle was also involved. In addition, the driver has been arrested and bailed until the circumstances are clear when the law can take its course as appropriate.

I shouldn't think the HGV driver feels too good about this either, although our sympathies quite rightly rest with the family of Mr Cramp.
