Michael Milton in hospital after bike crash

By johnboy 6 October 2010 23

The Canberra Times informs us that one of the most revered Canberrans, Michael Milton is recovering in hospital after running his bicycle into a garbage truck.

Canberra Paralympian Michael Milton is recovering in hospital with spinal, shoulder and rib fractures after a cycling accident in Dickson last week.

The five-time Paralympian lost control of his bike along Cowper Street and collided with a garbage truck last Friday.

Milton spent the long weekend in Canberra Hospital in a stable condition, but had no memory of what had caused the accident.

Here’s hoping he’s back on his foot soon.

a major external factor interrupts your progress

like, a large slow garbarge truck, that was in your forward vision for some time..? al’s reason is much more plausible and there sheets the blame rightly at the inadequate driving of the bus operator. i just thought that the article didn’t, as so many reports of driver failure in reports on collisions don’t, attribute appropriate repsonsibility. we too often get ‘the car lost control’ or such phrasing. take it on the chin, michael.

Maybe he was rounding a bend, avoiding a dog, watching a magpie???

Why does he have to take it on the chin? He wasnt winging? (& hasnt been on the cycle forums for thet matter either).
