Very sad. Sounds like another situation where a driver simply did not see a cyclist or wasn't paying attention.

having ridden that section of mona vale road countless times, you're moving pretty quick there - it's downhill and you can freewheel to over 50kmh fairly easily.
Must admit that I'm normally wary of the motorists coming out of the side streets, but not those doing right hand turns into those side streets (ie; cutting across your path)
Could well be yet another situation of a driver underestimating the speed of an oncoming cyclist?
I find it very common here that cars will pull out rather than wait for you to go past no matter what speed you're doing. Plenty of near misses...

What exactly was the hassle?

Just looked like someone having a look at the rider as their car passed by at a reasonably safe distance.
