After the accident last Thursday.

A cyclist who was a witness to the fatal accident in Capdepera last Thursday has disputed the version of Anais Marco Batalla. She has said that she was blinded by the sun and that in the process of adjusting the visor she collided with the group of twelve cyclists, one of whom - Christoph Bohnen - later died.

The witness says that it would have been impossible for her to have been dazzled as the sun was behind her. He explains that he is from the area and is also a cyclist. The sun was on the nape of his neck at the time of the accident. He adds that the road is wide and that there was 100% visibility and wonders whether she had in fact been distracted by having been on her phone or having taken something from her bag.

Another amateur cyclist believes that her "excuse" is a joke in bad taste. He also queries the plausibility of her having been dazzled by the sun. There were, he notes, no brake skid marks on the road. He rode the same stretch on Sunday.

All they need to do is find out what time the accident was, and see where the sun is shinning at the same time the next day. It sounds like a poor excuse from a desperate woman trying to get away with murder with no prison time.

I bet that photo is at least one hour after the accident and the sun is moving round. Anyway the pic shows the sun to the side but behind the drivers vision. yes to the witness and a big no to the driver.

Look at the photo. The direction of the ladies shadow clearly shows that the sun is from the left side of the car. Both the witness and the driver statements are inaccurate.
