A woman has been charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving over a crash in Stoke Newington that left a cyclist in intensive care.
Justine Henshaw-Bryan, 24, of Yoakley Road, was charged last week, police said.
It comes seven months after a collision in Victorian Grove that knocked cycle courier Damien Doughty off his bike. The driver did not stop.
He was left with a lacerated liver, broken hand and internal bleeding. A photograph of him lying weak and emaciated in the Royal London Hospital was shared widely and evidently tugged at the heartstrings of many – a crowdfunding page set up to help pay his rent smashed its £300 target within days and went on to raise thousands.
“It’s insane,” he told the Gazette at the time. “To get that much support from people is amazing.
“People reaching out like that that, it’s one of those moments you will look back on.”
Henshaw-Bryan will appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on October 19.
