A lorry driver has been charged with failing to stop at the scene of a collision following the death of cyclist Magda Tadaj in Croydon. Darren Anderton is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates Court on December 20.
Anderton was arrested after Tadaj was hit by a lorry in St James's Road near The Windmill pub in Selhurst on May 23. Despite the efforts of passers-by, the 25-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
Following her death, Croydon Council held an urgent meeting and has been assessing the safety of St James's Road.
John Vinsan, a staff member at SR1 Food and Wine below Tadaj's flat in Northborough Road, told the Croydon Advertiser that she had worked at Caffe Nero.
"She used to leave her bike outside the shop and come and get some Polish biscuits sometimes. She was very shy but used to tell me about her work. She used to cycle there."
