Cyclist vs. Harvester

On 10th of August in Czech Republic, 18 years old drove his bycicle on a road. He was then stopped by and verbally informed by escort car that large harvester is ahead and he’d better leave the road, wait until it passes in safe distance and then continue. While he left the road, he continued cycling offroad. When passing the harvester, he likely fell from his bike, falling right under the vehicle. Results were fatal.

As of now, the incident is still under investigation of state police and an autopsy of the award candidate is ordered to clarify the circumstances (alcohol, drugs etc.)

Thanks, but I think that this could just be a tragic accident

After reading the translated article I'm more than happy to accept this. Cycling on an uneven surface immediately next to a large tractor certainly doesn't sound like a good idea to me. Thanks, Jan!
