The *reason* for the collision.

I know you'd rather believe it was an attempt at murder.

And your reason for posting this on a cycling NG?
Other than the usual diversionary tactics, of course.

The motor vehicle driver killed one person and hurt two people, not
killed one person and hurt one person, in the crash. I made the
incident out to be less serious than it actually was.

How many cyclists were involved?


Up to three. Some of the emergency services attending the scene may
also have been cyclists.

Why do you ask?
