Many baying for the taxi drivers head it must have been his fault when in fact the dude ran through a red light into oncoming traffic. The taxi driver wasn't speeding as was "assumed'.
to try and get across exactly that.
The knee-jerk reaction is to blame the truck-driver, and given the reckless speed at which many of them drive, that's understandable.
But there's also a chance that the cyclist was on a hard & fast training run and made a bad call.
Until a description of the accident surfaces, we won't know either way.
