A motorcyclist who hit and killed a cyclist in Nottingham last year has pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving. David Staley hit Sally Shalloe near the junction of Wollaton Road and Middleton Boulevard just after 7.30am on Tuesday, April 21.
The Nottingham Post reported that Staley himself spent several days in a critical condition at the Queen's Medical Centre following the collision, while Shalloe was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
The BBC reports that Shalloe worked as a research fellow at the University of Nottingham and her husband Jim Hill said she had produced studies on road safety.
"She was cycling to work that morning. I had a policewoman walk into my work office and tell me she'd been killed. It was like being split in two with an axe. It's turned my life upside down completely. I've got a constant feeling of loss."
Staley is due to be sentenced on May 13.
