A man has denied causing the death of a 72-year-old cyclist by careless driving.
DHL delivery driver Mark Tuffs, of Alibon Road, Dagenham, is also charged with failing to report and failing to stop after an accident which led to the death of Colin Taylor on the B1115 at Luckeys Corner, Hitcham, Suffolk.
South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court in Ipswich heard the tragedy occurred on November 29 last year.
Mr Taylor, of Hitcham, died at the scene after allegedly being struck by a white DAF LF rigid lorry early in the afternoon.
The retired council worker was cycling along Finborough Road in Hitcham when his bicycle and the lorry were said to have been in collision.
