Akis Kollaros was killed by an HGV driven by Robert Taylor. Taylor had moved to the right before turning left, but had not indicated. This failure to indicate not only may have misled Kollaros, but also meant that safety features fitted to the vehicle were not activated.

Taylor pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving and in April 2016 was sentenced to 20 weeks’ imprisonment and was banned from driving for 12 months.
