Olympic bus driver bailed following fatal collision
LONDON: The driver of an Olympics media shuttle bus was bailed by police on Thursday following a fatal collision with a cyclist just outside London’s Olympic Park.
The driver, in his mid-60s, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, following the incident late Wednesday.
An AFP reporter saw a man’s legs protruding from under the double-decker bus on a Games lane slip road leading from the park. The man’s mangled racing bicycle lay nearby.
The cyclist, a man aged 28, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident happened just outside the perimeter of the Olympic Park behind the Riverbank Arena, where a men’s hockey match between Pakistan and Argentina was taking place.
The shuttle buses ferry the thousands of journalists covering the Games between the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, and hotels in the city centre.
A London 2012 spokesman confirmed that the bus was carrying media from the Olympic Park.
British cyclist Bradley Wiggins, who won the men’s individual time trial gold on Wednesday, called for the introduction of laws making it compulsory to wear cycling helmets.
Wiggins also urged people in general not to wear headphones while cycling. -- AFP
