Extremely sad news today that a cyclist was killed today after being hit by a truck.
A cyclist is dead after a crash with a truck in central Auckland this afternoon.
St John ambulance spokesman Norm Ngatai confirmed a man “about 30 years old” had died at the scene in Parnell.
“About 2.15pm a call came from the public of a truck versus a cyclist, on Parnell Rise near Stanley St.
“On ambulance arrival the patient was in critical condition, and shortly after the male was declared deceased on scene.”
In coming days we’ll be looking a lot closer at what is and isn’t being done to improve cycling in Auckland.
