Neil Hunter was apparently “cycling [east] along Doncaster Road towards Crofton [when he was] struck by a Ford Transit van, which was turning right at Oakenshaw Lane”. As reported by Coroner David Hinchliff said in his report, “the vehicle [sic] has turned in front of the bicycle, causing a collision with the side of the bike and causing Mr Hunter to suffer serious head injuries.” Given the restricted configuration of the junction, the exact movements of the two vehicles remain somewhat unclear.
