‘MASSIVE SAFETY CRISIS’: Food delivery cyclist killed in Redfern, Sydney UberEats under pressure after another food delivery cyclist killed

There are calls for an urgent response into “a massive safety crisis” unfolding in the Australian gig economy after yet another food delivery cyclist was killed on a Sydney road.

A food delivery cyclist died on Monday after being struck by a truck in Surry Hills.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Chalmers and Cleveland streets about 6.40pm on Monday and found a food delivery rider had died at the scene after he was hit by a truck carrying an excavator.

The driver of the truck – a man believed to be aged in his 30s – was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for mandatory testing.

Inquiries are continuing by officers from the Crash Investigation Unit.
