KWAZULU-NATAL - Another cyclist is in a critical condition after being hit by a vehicle in Richard's Bay in KwaZulu-Natal in the wake of pro-mountain biker Burry Stander's death last week.
KwaZulu-Natal emergency services said the 22-year-old woman was riding with other cyclists when the accident occurred.
Paramedics found the woman had been thrown several metres from where she was hit.
The driver of the vehicle was taken in for questioning by police.
Meanwhile, Durban police working on the investigation into Stander's death said the man that was allegedly responsible was fully cooperative.
The 25-year-old cyclist died on the scene after he was hit by a taxi in Shelly Beach on KwaZulu-Natal's south coast while on a training ride on Thursday afternoon.
Memorial rides took place across the country this weekend to commemorate the 2012 London Olympic Games winner's life.
Durban police said the man responsible for the accident would be charged with culpable homicide at the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court.
Police spokesperson Jay Naicker said the investigation was running smoothly because of the cooperation of the driver.
"Our detectives sped up the investigation. We have since obtained all the witness statements that we required."
