Pelvic injuries can be fatal, so nodoubt the police closed the road to ensure any evidence was secured and collected properly.

If the cyclist had pelvic injuries, then these would be classed as 'life changing' which would mean a full investigation by the collision investigation team.

Cyclist fortunate not to have broken anything. He is just bruised and shaken. Bike badly damaged.

Car pulled out from side street across path of rider in between the traffic calming measures.

Police and paramedic were on the scene quickly but ambulance took it's time. Don't understand why road was closed for 4 hours. They were probably measuring things as it was a serious acident. Thanks to the witness motorist who helped and to the St John's chap for his time and care.

Lucky not to have done serious injury.

It is good to hear the cyclist is alright and lets hope none of the do gooders moaning about the road being closed and the police hours spent there never find themselves in the same position as i am sure they would want the job done properly and same duty of care given.

Subliminal way of telling us the sex of the driver?

Either way that particular "traffic calming" layout causes the exact 180 degree opposite of traffic calming - drivers racing each other to get into the middle "right of way zone".

Perhaps you should concentrate on the road a bit more and not the other Guys! .You'll be needing the same duty of care sooner than you think if you cant keep your eye on the road. λ
