Another cyclist was killed last night when he and a car collided on an East Auckland road.
The 36-year-old cyclist, who died at the scene, is believed to have had severe chest and neck injuries.
Police said the accident occurred when a car crossed two lanes of traffic to turn into a driveway, pulling in front of the cyclist as he travelled down the hill, according to the New Zealand Herald.
The death is the latest in a series of serious accidents involving cyclists.
In October, Mairangi Bay GP Graham Robinson was killed while training for a charity bike ride near Helensville.
The driver has yet to be found.
