Lorry driver bailed over death of young female cyclist
Rider pronounced dead at scene of incident in Camden
A 65-year old lorry driver arrested on suspicion of causing the death by careless or dangerous driving of a 20-year old female cyclist in the London borough of Camden earlier this week, had been bailed.
The man was arrested at the scene of an incident on Tuesday in which the woman died as a result of having been struck by a flat-bed, building-materials delivery lorry which was making a left turn at the junction of Camden Road and St Pancras Way, NW1.
The incident took place at approximately 3.20pm and the young woman, identified as a Polish student by one source, was pronounced dead at the scene by the London Ambulance Service shortly before 4.00pm.
The driver was initially held in police custody but has now been released on police bail until June. The Metropolitan Police’s Road Death Investigation Unit is conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the collision.
