Tragic indeed.

Seems the last couple of years have been increasing number of bad incidents.

The Cycling Tips article mentions possibly front-on, driver stopped, middle of the day.

Quote

CyclingTips understands Drapac was riding alone when he was hit front-on by a driver travelling in the opposite direction. The male driver of the car stopped and is understood to be assisting police with their inquiries.

 

We all know we take risks riding on road, and always tragic when the worst happens, but front-on.

I have unofficially heard that the driver may have experienced a medical episode that lead to the incident. It may be just one of those horrible incidents that life throws up every now and again.

Yeah head on travelling the other way seems to be something more than the norm.

it could just as easily have hit another car and we wouldn’t be having this discussion, this MAY be just piss poor luck.

A nice tribute & video here - https://cyclingtips.com/2019/05/michael-drapac-on-the-loss-of-his-son-damion-his-philosophy-of-cycling-and-life/?fbclid=IwAR1TeQFPvyOMXKBd4asMCNM9zYt-mxTRW7cc249ZHUeVjom3PxWkr9rMYo8

 

Driver had a diabetic hypo and went unconscious, drifted across lane & hit him head on.  Police said it was an 'impossible event'.
