Default Lorry driver jailed for killing cyclist

QUOTE:
“Both Bradbury and his employer knew his view would be impaired, but both their complacency and total lack of regard for the law were the overriding factors that led to the tragic death of Dr Suzanna Bull.

“I hope this sends a serious message to all road hauliers and drivers to review their vehicle checking processes as the safety of all road users is and always should be a priority."

S&J Transport pleaded guilty to failing to discharge its duty contrary to the Health and Safety at Work Act by failing to supervise the use of the tables and was fined £112,500 and ordered to pay £3,000 in costs.

Bradbury was jailed for 21 months and banned from the roads for 34 months.

Asked if he knew who was at fault for the accident during the trial, Bradbury said: "It was six of one and half-a-dozen of the other."

Judge Paul Farrer QC said he saw no signs during the trial that Bradbury believed he was to blame for the death.

If only she had worn a helmet.
