Former London bike courier smashed into a woman crossing a street. She died. He didn't intentionally hit her, but, he couldn't avoid her either, he had no front brakes on his fixie

In London, there is a 150 year old law still on the books, "wanton or furious driving" and this young biker was convicted of that, not manslaughter.

The woman, and mother of 2, leaves behind a husband that is out to get the law changed...
