Bicycle Accident: Cyclist Dies after Collision with Lorry
A female cyclist was killed in a bicycle accident, when she collided with a lorry on her way to work earlier this week.
Lucia Ciccioli was hit just before 8am on Monday 24th October as she rode through rush-hour traffic in London.
Medical teams, including London’s air ambulance, attended the scene but nothing could be done for the victim.
One witness said he saw police officers from a nearby station rush to Miss Ciccoli’s aid. They added that the scene was “too traumatic” to describe.
The lorry driver involved in the collision stopped after the crash and was not arrested by police.
Information released by the construction logistics and cyclists safety network noted that the lorry was travelling west towards Wandsworth. It was not making a turn at the time of the accident.
Miss Ciccioli’s father said their family has been destroyed by the incident:
“We are destroyed. We still cannot comprehend what has happened, we don’t believe it.”
The 32 year old waitress is the seventh person to die whilst cycling in London this year.
