E-bike crash death prompts debate over safety on UK roads
Sakine Cihan was struck by a power-assisted bicycle as she was crossing a road in London
When Sakine Cihan died of injuries she sustained in a road collision last month, she was said to be the first pedestrian to be killed by an e-bike in the UK. It is feared that the growing craze for power-assisted cycling means she won’t be the last.
Cihan was crossing Kingsland High Street in Dalston, east London, when she was struck by a Specialized electric bike. The rider was arrested a day later after he came forward, and then released under investigation.
