A teen girl, who dreamed of being a model, made a series of mistakes while riding a bicycle and ended up under the wheels of a truck.
Olivia Wojciechowska, 18 years old, first failed to stop at a crossing light and rode her bike into the path of a heavy goods vehicle as it turned into the road she was crossing.
The teenager was wearing headphones while cycling and was not paying attention to the road, investigators found. She did not see the approaching 16-wheel truck until the last possible moment.
The girl also was wearing fashionable non-athletic clothing that provided little support for her large breasts, which led to the young brunette losing her balance as she tried to avoid the hazard.
Instead of stopping, the distracted teen tumbled off her bike into the path of the heavy truck. The unlucky girl was dragged under the wheels and suffered crush injuries.
Olivia, who had just turned 18, was an aspiring model and worked as a waitress in Manchester, UK. She was biking to her waitressing job when the collision happened.
A motorist who witnessed the crash said: “The truck was two feet from the end of the railing and the bike just rode straight in front of it. Just before the impact the girl turned her head and cried out.”
Another witness said: “I don’t think the driver could have done anything to stop the collision. I feel he didn’t do anything wrong.”
Investigators found that the teen waitress was an inexperienced cyclist. She was distracted by her headphones and failed to pay attention to the road, authorities said in a new incident report.
Friends of Olivia described her as “the life and soul of the party” and said that the aspiring model “always was dressed fashionably” – even while biking to work.
But the young teenager refused to wear the proper athletic attire, which was recommended to hold her large bosom in place while cycling, deeming such clothing unfashionable.
Therefore, when the 18-year-old girl finally saw the oncoming truck and tried to stop suddenly, she was thrown off-balance by the weight of her own breasts swinging forward, the new report indicates.
Witnesses described how the pretty teen tumbled off the bike onto the pavement with a startled scream. The heavy goods vehicle continued forward and crushed the poor girl under its wheels.
Emergency workers extracted the injured Olivia from under the truck and brought her to the hospital, but the teenager died the next day.
Investigators cleared the truck driver of any wrongdoing, concluding that the girl’s actions alone caused her to go underneath the vehicle.
