Family of killed cyclist, Kenny Lush, receive highest ever sum of damages for a fatal injury claim through CTC's solicitors Slater & Gordon (May 2009)

Kenneth Lush, 47, of Ware, died when he was hit while cycling on the A414 between Hatfield and Hertford in May 2012. Debra Hearn (Nee Kelly), 38, of Tubbs Croft, Welwyn Garden City, who is due to give birth in six weeks’ time, was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court.

It would appear from reports that Miss Kelly was not charged with leaving the scene of an accident, which she should have been.
