Venera Minakhmetova

Person Born 1989 Died 13/11/2013

Countries: Russia

From London24: "Ms Minakhmetova, a former City financial analyst from Bethnal Green, set up her own business in June 2013 called Simple2Connect, a location-based professional networking application for mobile phones.

The 24-year-old from Siberia, described herself as an “addict networker” and was a regular face at various events at Shoreditch’s Tech City. She graduated from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations before completing an MSc in finance at Cass Business School in 2011."

At 8.45am on a Wednesday morning Venera was dragged under the wheels of a lorry on the cyclist death-trap, otherwise known as Cycle Superhighway, CS2, at the Bow Roundabout. This seems to have happened at exactly the same spot where SvitlanaTereschenko was killed in the same awful way almost exactly 2 years previous.

Coroner concludes Venera Minakhmetova died after riding through red light at Bow Roundabout

But family says rider was "always suspicious" at Bow

by John Stevenson April 10, 2014

Coroner Mary Hassell yesterday warned of the dangers of ignoring traffic signals after finding that the death last year of Venera Minakhmetova was caused by her riding through a red light at Bow Roundabout.

The Evening Standard’s Ross Lydall reports that a Metropolitan Police crash investigator told the court that it was “most likely” Venera had ridden through the red light before being hit by a left-turning HGV.

Ms Minakhmetova, 24, was the third cyclist to die at Bow Roundabout since the opening of Cycle Superhighway 2 in 2011 and one of six riders killed in a two-week period during November of last year.

But Ms Minakhmetova’s family said they doubted she would have jumped the lights. Her sister Dina told BBC London after the inquest: “She was always suspicious about this roundabout... When Venera went there it wasn’t safe.”

With no CCTV footage to help establish the exact events that led up to the crash, police had to rely on GPS and tachograph data from the tipper truck, and the testimony of the driver.

Recording a verdict of death by road traffic collision at Poplar coroner’s court, Ms Hassell said: “I conclude that the fundamental cause of this collision was Venera going through a red light.”

She said many cyclists went through red lights but did not suffer the same “devastating consequences” by “virtue of luck”.

Ms Hassell said: “It’s important that I’m open and honest about the cause of this collision, for no other reason that other cyclists need to understand what dangerous behaviour contravening a red light is, and that there are potentially devastating consequences.”

The court heard from Metropolitan Police collision investigator PC Michael Andrews who told the inquest that it was most likely Ms Minakhmetova had ridden in the cycle lane, on the lorry’s left, as she arrived at the roundabout from Stratford.

He said: “Venera must have come down his side at some point to get in front of him. Therefore, and assuming Venera has used the cycle lane, I believe it’s most likely she has contravened the red traffic light.”

After the the deaths of Brian Dorling and Svitlana Tereschenko in 2011, the lights at Bow were modified to provide cyclists with an early start. These lights were criticised by safety campaigners for being confusing. It's therefore possible that Ms Minakhmetova rode through what she believed was a green light.

HGV driver Mark Stoker was travelling from picking up rubble at a site in Stratford and turning left at Bow toward the Blackwall Tunnel. Venera is thought to have been riding straight across the roundabout toward central London.

Mr Stoker said: “I was three-quarters of the way round and then I just heard a metal noise and stopped straight away and realised what had happened.”

Data from his vehicle showed he was doing 13mph at the time of the collision. His lorry was fitted with sensors to detect cyclist at its sides and a left-turn audible warning.

Bow Roundabout was remodelled after the deaths of Brian Dorling and Svitlana Tereschenko in 2011 and further modified after Ms Hassall issued a Prevention of Future Deaths report after the inquest into Brian Dorling’s death last year.

She said yesterday she had “nothing useful” to say to Transport for London as the roundabout had since “been altered to such an extent that it’s very significantly safer for cyclists”.

Cyclist and lawyer Martin Porter has represented bereaved families at several inquests and has posted a commentary on his blog explaining the limits of the inquest process. It’s well worth a read.

Among the problems with the system Martin points out are that coroners are no longer allowed to point the finger of blame at specific individuals or organisations.

He writes: “Following a road traffic collision the Coroner will inevitably rely very heavily on the evidence of the police (who have investigated a collision with a view to finding if there is evidence of a criminal offence). A report will be admitted which may well conclude (say) that the collision occurred as a consequence of the deceased running a red light and no fault has been disclosed on the part of any other person. The Coroner then, mindful of [the rules under The Coroners and Criminal Justice Act 2009], will say something like "I find the deceased died as a consequence of running a red traffic light but I must stress that I am not attributing any kind of blame to him". Which is, of course, doublespeak.”

Martin also points out that the inquest may be the only opportunity for the driver’s account to be properly challenged. He writes: “Quite often, if not usually, the Coroner will come to the end of his questioning of the witness without making an effective challenge himself.”

Martin stresses he's talking in general, but you have to wonder whether, in this case, the accounts of the driver and police were challenged at all, given that Venera Minakhmetova's family appears to have had no legal representation at the inquest.

London cyclist's death must lead to change, her family says

Venera Minakhmetova had moved to London to develop her business

The family of a cyclist killed in London have said her death should be a catalyst for improving road safety.

Venera Minakhmetova died when she was struck by lorry at Bow Roundabout, on Wednesday.

The Russian, who had been on the Cycle Superhighway 2 (CS2) just before the collision, was the fourth of five cyclists to die in London in nine days.

In a letter, her sister Dina said: "Her death should be treated as a sign the time has come to try to change things."

Writing from Russia, Dina Minakhmetova said: "I didn't know about dangerous situation on London roads, but after understanding the entire picture of how many friends, sisters, brothers and sons/daughters were tragically lost in such accidents, I have to say that my sister is the person to stop such a tendency.

"She had a purpose to achieve something, so let's achieve all together the end of such tragic deaths by doing something, by letting know people around that the situation on the streets isn't to be ignored.... the system isn't working.

"Nevertheless, at the same time I should state that the cyclists should not forget about safety measures and common logic."

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has been urged to hold a safety summit following the deaths, by the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety.

Executive director David Davies said: "The boom in cycling in London has many benefits and we support it but the tragic events of the past few days show that there is a need for urgent action.

"We must avoid knee-jerk reactions and measures that might be counterproductive," he added.

Speaking on LBC 97.3 Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said large vehicles could be "killing machines" and both drivers and cyclists needed to consider how they use the road.

'Amazing person'

He said: "It is difficult for the drivers. They're big vehicles, they can't always see out properly but they've got to take a little bit more care.

"Equally, if you've got your own cycle, you've got to abide by the rules of the road and you've got to think about your own safety."

In the letter, Ms Minakhmetova's family added: "We are just proud of our Venera, about what an amazing person she was, applying herself everywhere, from arts (painting and playing piano) to investment banking.

"I believe that the best quality of her was her passion, her love of being alive and having an opportunity to improve everything around her."

Ms Minakhmetova had worked at London-based Edelau and investment bank Merrill Lynch and was living in the Bethnal Green area to develop her financial services business.

Awarded a full-scholarship to university in Russia, she had gone on to win the semi-final of Moscow Open, an international annual debating championship.
