    Wasn’t at the junction as some are saying on here. It was on the bend 200 yds. West of the Humbers junction.
    It’s a shallow bend with good visibility, a wide road and new surface.

    I walked the new path yesterday evening and frequently cycle it – the speed of the drivers last night was shocking and still drivers overtake there was another near miss just before the junction

    It does need lighting at the junctions, I turn off at Wellington Road and its very poor visibility especially in the wet.

    My personal opinion is that blaming the road is a dangerous way to go, when I get behind the wheel of a car I’m responsible for my driving. We need to make people accountable for their actions. I don’t know who was to blame in this instance (I’ve heard speculation, but the police are asking so they can get to the bottom of what/who caused it) but an accident is very rarely that… be safe out there.
