What happened?

Mr Browne was cycling home from work on Bow Road in East London in the designated cycle lane. As he approached the junction with Alfred Road, a motor vehicle attempted to turn right from Bow Road into Alfred Road in the path of Mr Browne. The vehicle did not have the time or space to turn into the side road and our client was forced to brake sharply.  There was insufficient braking distance for our client to avoid the vehicle, and a collision occurred. The impact resulted in our client being thrown from his bike onto the road.
