Cyclist injured on tram tracks after smashing into bus
Woman fell just yards from where a student was crushed to death in Edinburgh in May.
A cyclist has been injured after getting stuck in tram tracks before smashing into a bus.
The woman fell from her bicycle after the wheels jammed in the rails on Shandwick Place in Edinburgh, just yards from where a student was crushed to death in May.
The 25-year-old was taken to hospital with a leg injury following the incident at 3.55pm on Thursday.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "The 25-year-old woman was taken to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary with a none life-threatening leg injury.
"Enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances and anyone who may have witnessed this is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101."
The crash is the latest in a long-running list of incidents involving cyclists getting stuck in Edinburgh's tram tracks.
Medical student Zhi Min Soh, originally from Malaysia, was hit by a Rabbie's tour bus after her bike wheels became caught in the tram tracks outside House of Fraser on Princes Street on May 31.
She later died from her injuries.
Edinburgh City Council transport convener Lesley Macinnes said cyclist safety is a "priority" for the local authority.
"We are aware of the accident in the city centre yesterday afternoon and hope the cyclist makes a full recovery," she said.
"At this time, we cannot speculate on the circumstances but we will continue to work with Police Scotland as they investigate what happened.
"Pedestrian and cyclist safety is a major priority for the Council and our partners and we are examining cycle safety in the wake of the tragic fatality on Princes Street last month.
"One of the key steps planned is to consult with pedestrian and cycle groups on a review of the infrastructure around the junction at the west end of Princes Street to ensure cyclists and pedestrians can use this junction safely and conveniently."
