Cyclist dies following collision
A woman has died after a collision near the Mancunian Way.
At about 3pm on Saturday 3 August 2013, police were called to the slip road heading from Princess Road to the Mancunian Way following reports of a collision involving a cyclist and a black Seat Leon.
Officers attended and the cyclist, a 44-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the car, a 40-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and remains in police custody for questioning.
Inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the collision are ongoing.
The crash appears to have happened on a pedestrian crossing on the westbound slip road onto the Mancunian Way by the Redbricks flats.
When I went to have a look this evening I saw someone on a bike trying to use the same route.
The alternative is to disobey the no cycling sign and use the underpass, or risk riding on the roundabout.
This location clearly has a history of accidents.
There is even this sign on the approach to the site of the fatality.
What can you say about this - this is one death too many.
