Its crazy that he participate for so long in one of the worlds most dangerous sports, ad then gets mangled on a pedal bike. A bit like Schumacher.

Poor bugger -I wonder if he was wearing a helmet? But then Schumacher was wearing a helmet...........?

I always feel more vulnerable when riding a pushbike than a motorbike on the road. On a motorbike you can do a fair bit to keep out of trouble whereas on a pushbike you have to put up with what other road users do to you. There have been quite a few 'names' involved in cycling accidents recently.

I cycle with a helmet but they don't offer much protection from side impacts. serious brain damage doesn't sound good, poor sod.

Seeing that the front of the roof by the screen is stoved in, I would say the car was doing a fair lick.
Seen a couple of comments about him being brain-dead. Just hope they turn him off if that's so, unlike the poor sod in Switzerland.

You're quite right Jamba, higher up the screen/roof edge the damage is - the faster the vehicle was travelling at the time of impact. The damage looks to equate to possibly around 40mph maybe more depending what caused the damage - awful impact for him. I wish him well :(
If the driver was on his phone I hope someone saw him, if not it's really very difficult to prove if he denies it.

Call logs from his provider would tell it like it is.

Reading some of the Italian reports the car driver was breath tested and found to be sober.
It also mentioned that Nicky had been wearing headphones and was listening to music- so unlikely to have been wearing a helmet.

Yes absolutely, the call log will tell you he was on the phone at or near the time but, exactly what time did the collision take place? Trust me here Jamba, I speak from experience of trying to prove someone was on the phone when he hit and killed a pedestrian on a crossing.
For the UK burden of proof you need someone to have seen it or an admission from the driver, call log evidence will add weight to that eyewitness evidence or admission. Maybe the Italian courts and their burden of lesser proof would accept just the call log, I think a lot of convictions get overturned there though.
