Man seriously injured in bicycle / truck collision at Harold’s Cross Bridge

A man cycling a bicycle was seriously injured in a collision with a motorist driving a truck at the junction beside Harold’s Cross Bridge this afternoon.

Damian Hogan at the Garda press office said: “Gardaí at Terenure in Dublin are appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic collision which occurred at the junction of Harold’s Cross Road and Grove Road at approximately 3.55pm today.”

He added: “A male pedal cyclist was struck by a lorry at the above location. The cyclist was taken by ambulance to St James Hospital where his injuries are described as serious.”

Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to contact them at Terenure Garda Station 01-666 6400, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

  1. I’m guessing if he was wearing a plastic bike hat, then it was feck all use to him :( It would also be good to know if he was wearing HiViz. The last person to be killed by a truck was wearing both a plastic bike hat and HiViz. Time for the Gards to cop-on and stop with proposing utterly worthless ‘solutions’ to the problem of dangerous driving.

    It’s like what they proposed recently in London – heavy car-pollution in the air so people were advised to stay indoors. Utterly bizarre reaction to a serious problem.

  2. I wish the Garda Press Office would cease giving worthless information about these unacceptable collisions using a term such as ‘lorry’ to describe the vehicle that impacted with the rider. There are many different types of goods vehicle ranging from a panel van to a rigid 2-5 axle HGV to a semi-trailer HGV.
    We know that 3-5 axle rigs rigid/trailer have a fatal flaw in the cab design to please tell us the nature of the rig involved in this and every RTC. Tell us if the rider was wearing hi-vis or a plastic flower pot.
    We have a right to know basic details.
