A cyclist from Edinburgh, Scotland, was run over by a bus after her wheels became stuck in tram tracks.

The 24-year-old woman was knocked down while riding her bike on Princes Street. She was rushed to Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh but later died.

It is understood the woman’s bike tyre got caught in tram tracks, which caused her to topple over into the path of a minibus.

Sergeant Fraser Wood from the Road Policing Unit in Edinburgh said: “Sadly, as a result of this collision, the young woman sustained injuries that she could not recover from. Our sympathies are with her family and friends at this time.

“As part of our ongoing investigation we remain keen to speak to members of the public who witnessed this incident, or who have information that can assist us in establishing the full circumstances of what happened.”
