First hand report: Olympic bus vs cyclist

From Reddit:

As I was cycling home from work tonight a guy, maybe in his late 20′s, was cycling level with me and as we approached a bus he went inside while I held back. The lights changed as he was in the buses blind spot and as he was attempting to go straight the bus turned left. He didn’t really have anywhere to go and no time to do anything anyway… he got pulled under the wheel and dragged around 10 feet or so. As soon as the bus was definitely stopped i crawled under to him from the other side and i was immediately aware that i didn’t think he’d make it.

Discussion and more: Just sat down with some poor bloke for his last few seconds. Be safe out there guys.
