I took this picture on Saturday as we passed a crash scene on Newport Road and have now found the following on the icwales website. Looks pretty bad.
I hate that junction, it really is dangerous and has been since they introduced the 2 lane > 1 lane system a few years ago. Very stupid.

From icwales;
A woman is fighting for her life after a motorbike ploughed into her as she crossed a city road.

The 27-year-old from Cardiff is in a critical condition in hospital following the collision on Saturday evening.

She was crossing Newport Road in Cardiff at its junction with Albany Road – an area residents have described as a notorious accident blackspot – when she was hit by the bike.

The crash victim suffered multiple fractured bones as well as serious head injuries, while her friend was left with less serious injuries.

Police closed the section of the road around the crash scene – known locally as whitewashed wall – which was left strewn with debris from the motorbike, for around two hours afterwards.
