An inquest heard in July 2015 that Federica Baldassa was crushed by a left-turning truck whilst also turning left herself. Collision investigator Paul De Neys said that she would have had time to stop, and would have been visible in two of the vehicle’s mirrors for no more than a second and a half.

Coroner Mary Hassell ruled a verdict of death by road traffic accident.
