Cyclist killed in collision with Olympics shuttle bus
LONDON (AFP) - A man was killed after his bicycle was involved in a collision with an Olympics shuttle bus near the site of the Games in London on Wednesday, the ambulance service said.
An AFP reporter saw a man's legs protruding from under the double decker bus on a slip road outside the Olympic Park and his mangled racing bicycle lay nearby.
A group of around 30 soldiers who had been carrying out security duties at the Olympic Park ran over to the scene, where traffic soon built up causing long tailbacks.
A London Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed that one man was found dead at the scene.
