Daniel Cox death crash driver arrested


Another white bike for the borough: at Dalston Junction

Victim named as Hackney cyclist Daniel Cox, 28

Update Wed 13 June 2012: The driver of a lorry under which cyclist Daniel Cox fell with fatal consequences has, more than a year later, avoided prosecution. LovingDalston can do no better than to link to the excellent Evening Standard report and good analysis by a lawyer-cyclist. Press the emboldened hyperlinks.

Police have arrested the driver of a heavy goods vehicle involved in an accident after which a 28-year-old cyclist died in hospital.

The victim, Daniel Cox, of Clapton, was in the Royal London in Whitechapel for three nights as doctors fought for his life. The HGV driver, a 51-year-old British resident, has been bailed to return in July.

    I suggest Admin can set up a forum, so that we can talk and communicate.

    Poor lorry driver!

    Any decent person will feel for the driver and the horror and regret with which now lives. As do Cox’s parents.— Ed.
