Woman, 80, decapitated by concrete lorry on bustling London street


“No arrests have been finished and enquiries continue.”

Euromix Concrete did not respond to a ask for comment. 

In January, Lionel Butler, 78, of Battersea, died when he was strike by a white concrete mixer lorry on Battersea Park Road. 

And in September, Sheila Karsberg, 79, of Highgate, north London, died after being strike by a concrete lorry in Camden, north London. 

The motorist of a Cemex lorry told an inquisition that he did not see her and believed he had run over a bin bag when he felt a bump. 

Police investigators resolved that a motorist had finished all by a book though fundamental blindspots from a vehicle’s cab meant he would not have seen a licentiate channel a road. 

PC Alex Routt told a inquest: “As shortly as she stairs off a pavement, she effectively becomes not visible.”
