A man and his 2-year-old son riding on an electric bicycle were crushed yesterday as they were turning right onto Taisha Road (Humen Town, Dongguan) in front of a cement truck. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Fortunately, the child managed to fall in between wheels and survive.
This is a good time to remind all bike and scooter riders to always be vigilant while riding. Look out for opening doors, speeding cars and most importantly consider blind spots on large vehicles. Trucks, for example, will not see you while in a certain zone (illustrated below).
Cycling can be a great, healthy way to get around. Always wear a helmet and do everything you can to avoid danger.
