Truck driver pleads guilty to causing the deaths of two cyclists

A lorry driver has pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of two cyclists who were in the middle of a charity fund raising event in Cornwall.

Robert Palmer pleaded guilty to death by dangerous driving at Truro Crown Court last week (27 June) following the incident on 2 July 2013.

He also pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving resulting in serious injuries to another driver in an incident two months later on the A30 in Devon, whilst on bail for the fatal collisions.

Toby Wallace, 36, and Andrew McMenigall, 47, were killed while cycling on the A30 road near Summercourt in Newquay, to raise money in memory of a work colleague who died from cancer.

Both men were cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise funds for the Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust.

Palmer was released on conditional bail, together with an interim driving disqualification, until Monday 1 September in order for reports to be prepared.
