Posted March 08, 2019 11:57:49A bicycle is one of the most commonly injured parts of the bicycle, but it can also be a valuable piece of equipment.

    A recent collision on the Melbourne street that killed a woman and injured a boy left a group of bicyclists with serious injuries.

    The accident happened near the intersection of Swanston and Northcote streets about 1:30pm yesterday.

    The woman, who was cycling with her boyfriend, was travelling west on Swanston Street when the bus veered off the road.

    The cyclist was taken to hospital with serious head injuries and is now in a critical condition.

    Police say they have no idea what caused the crash, but the bus driver has since been charged with dangerous driving.

    Police are still searching for the driver.
