HGV travelling between 17 and 19mph during impact

The Father of Phillipine de Gerin-Ricard shakes the hand of Richard James, the HGV driver, on his way out of court. The inquest continues with the police traffic incident investigator, who says:

Scuffing on HGV wheels indicates to me that the bicycle or Phillipine went under the wheels.

The vehicle was travelling at between 17 and 19 miles an hour at the moment of impact.

Due to the height of the lorry at the driving position there is an area immediately in front of the lorry which cannot be seen.
