Bicyclist Killed in Tragic Bicycle Accident at Olympics

News outlets are reporting that a 28 year-old man was killed in a bicycle accident after he collided with an Olympics media shuttle bus carrying journalists away from Olympic Park. The crash occurred on Wednesday (August 1) at roughly 7:30 p.m within a mile of the sporting complex. Witnesses reported that the bicyclist was underneath the bus and his mangled bicycle to the side.
Police constables arrived at the scene shortly thereafter and proceeded to arrest a 60 year-old man under suspicion of reckless driving; it is alleged that the driver's actions may have contributed to the untimely and tragic death in this bicycle accident. Although swift action was reportedly undertaken by paramedics and first-responders, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:14 p.m.

An investigation into this bicycle accident has been opened by the Traffic Investigation Unit and is ongoing at the moment.
