Some very sad news. Our thoughts are with the cyclist’s families.
A CYCLIST was killed and another seriously injured in a crash with a car today.
Two men were cycling along the A167 Croft Road outside Darlington at 10am when they were involved in a collision with a passing Citroen C4.
Very sad, and my condolences to the family. I have cycled this road on only two occasions and have avoided it ever since. The road twists and turns and the powered vehicles travel far to fast to allow good reaction to slower road users.
I won’t go near this road. When cycling along there 10 years ago with my son, he was knocked off his bike into the hedge very close to where this accident happened.
As someone who also drives down this road sometimes, I’ve noticed how the sun seems to glare particularly badly along this stretch too.
