Another cyclist hit at Hackney horror junction

A YOUNG WOMAN IS the latest cyclist to be injured in Hackney.

Witnesses to the accident said the victim was not riding her bike but wheeling it across the junction when she was hit by a double-decker bus.

The accident happened at the difficult-to-negotiate junction of Graham Road and Dalston Lane, London E8 3A, today 15 Feb2011 at about 6pm.

Emergency services arrived quickly on the scene and she was treated in the ambulance before being moved to hospital.
