A solicitor in London was left with significant injuries after being struck by a cyclist who ran a red light.
It has been reported that the solicitor was hit by the bike as he was crossing at a pedestrian crossing. At the time of the collision it is reported that the bike was travelling at 26 miles per hour.
The cyclist went over the handle bars following the collision but did not sustain any injury. Unfortunately, the solicitor suffered significant injuries by way of a fractured skull and brain haemorrhage. The Solicitor is reported to have no memory of the accident.
The cyclist denies careless cycling charges. He is accused of cycling without due care and attention when approaching a pedestrian crossing, by making no attempts to slow down, by failing to anticipate a pedestrian could step out and by failing to keep a proper look out.
