Pensioner who killed cyclist in road accident avoids prison
A pensioner who killed a cyclist in his cement mixer lorry has walked free from court.
Stephen Bateman previously admitted causing the death of church rector’s assistant Joanna Braithwaite by careless driving.
The 74-year-old’s cement mixer struck and killed Miss Braithwaite at about 9am on October 28.
But this afternoon at Oxford Crown Court a judge imposed an eight month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.
