2 arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after cyclist died in Crumlin, Caerphilly county (12/08/13)

A 51-year-old man from the Porth area, and a 59-year-old from the Ebbw Vale area have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving after a cyclist died following a crash involving two cars on the A472.

CTC's view: 

Failing to have a safe regard for vulnerable road users, including cyclists, is given as an example of dangerous driving in the Crown Prosecution Service’s charging and prosecution guidance. Mr Bisi not only failed to have a safe regard for Mr Jones, but according to his defence he also drove blind for ten seconds whilst the sun hampered his vision. It would have been more appropriate, therefore, for the Crown to have charged him with causing death by dangerous driving.
