Lorry crash news

Insurers pay out £200k in compensation to widow

The widow of a cyclist, who suffered fatal personal injuries in a collision with a lorry, has been awarded £200,000 in road traffic accident compensation.

The cyclist had been riding along the A1 in Tickencote, Rutland when a lorry ran into him, in September 2009.

The 65-year-old had been well known in Leicestershire's cycling community and had won several trophies during his riding career.

The crash caused him to suffer severe chest and abdominal injuries and sadly he died two days after the incident took place.

The lorry driver appeared at Leicester Crown Court where he pleaded guilty to driving dangerously. He went on to serve less than six months of his sixteen-month sentence.

The wife of the cyclist has since accepted a compensation offer from the insurers of the lorry driver.

The road traffic accident compensation will provide the family with some financial security for the future.
