Four cyclists killed in car crash

Four cyclists including a 14-year-old boy have been killed after a driver lost control of his car on an icy north Wales road. Three men, one 42, another 49, and a third in his 60s, and the teenager died instantly when they were hit head on, on the A547 near Abergele.

The father of the dead boy suffered a broken leg. They were in a group of 12 from Rhyl Cycling Club. Police said a Toyota Corolla crashed on a bend. The driver had minor injuries. The cyclists were said to be riding in fine weather, in pairs and wearing helmets, when they were struck by the car travelling in the opposite direction shortly after 1000 GMT on the A547 Ludland Road.

According to the Met Office, conditions were dry and the overnight temperature had been -1.4C. All the cyclists were from the Rhyl area and, according to the cycling club's website, its Sunday club was on a 60-mile trip between Great Orme and Llanrwst.
