Categories: Tragedy, Cyclist

From East London Cyclist: "Elizabeth was killed at the junction of Burdett Road and Mile End road on Friday 24th September 1999 at 1.00 pm. The incident involved a 38 ton lorry turning left from Mile End Road into Burdett Road.

Elizabeth {Kiki / Liz} was 21 and has a twin sister Angela, they were both student nurses at Guys Hospital. She was travelling from halls of residence in Devas Street to the City University to submit a project paper. Elizabeth had a love of horses and had worked in France looking after them. Her father Robin lives in Colchester where she grew up. Her mother died of cancer between two and three years ago and this seems to have prompted Elizabeth to begin training as a nurse.

Elizabeth's funeral took place on 4th October and a member of the LCC/Wheelers was in attendance. Her father has requested that friends and family send donations to The London Cyclists Trust to enable the LCC to continue to work toward road safety improvements."

The picture source website has a lot of information about why so many cyclists are killed by HGVs.
