A woman who was cycling was seriously injured in a collision between her bicycle and a truck after the driver turned left from The Coombe into St Luke’s Avenue / Cork Street in Dublin 8 last Wednesday.
At this point it’s unclear which direction the person cycling was travelling in. The Gardai said today that investigations are ongoing.
Earlier this year, a member of the public highlighted to the city council that a recently painted straight ahead cycle lane on The Coombe and on the inside the general traffic turning lane towards Cork Street was causing extra conflicts compared to when there was no cycle lane on the street.
“Gardaí attended the scene of a road traffic collision involving a truck and bicycle which occurred on St Luke’s [Avenue], Dublin 8 on the 21st October 2020 at approximately 3:30pm,” said Gillian Fee at the Garda Press Office.
She added: “A female cyclist was taken to St James Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries reported. Investigations are ongoing.”
