Motorist observes cyclist passing parked cars ahead, tried to go around him, clips the central reservation, bounces into cyclist and kills him.
Motorist Joseph Strong was driving behind him and saw him pull out, prompting him to pull over to give the vicar enough room.
But a central reservation caused the road to narrow, and Mr Strong’s Skoda car clipped the kerb of the reservation as he tried to pass. His car turned slightly towards Mr Malleson, an experienced cyclist, and lightly clipped his handlebars.
The “scuff” prompted Mr Malleson, who was not wearing a cycle helmet, to lose his balance and fall to the ground.
Anyone care to suggest how he passed with "enough room" when apparently a slight turn of his car was sufficient to clip the bars?
