A trainee maths teacher killed when his car ploughed into an oncoming lorry may have been trying to retrieve his phone after it fell into the passenger footwell, an inquest heard.Best to pull over when that happens. Guess the chap wasn'tt too familiar with physics.
The lorry driver said he could not see anyone in the driver's seat seconds before the impact, and the handset was found in the footwell – tests failed to establish whether Mr Mogra had been using it during the journey.Hmmmm, I wonder why?
PC Paul Joynson of Greater Manchester Police told the hearing: '...the phone was encrypted so it was not possible to establish if it had been used to send messages before the collision.Curiouser and curiouser...
There was 'no evidence' Mr Mogra was wearing a seatbelt, he added.
'His mother said she had constantly reminded her son to wear a seatbelt when he was driving.'/facepalm
Recording a conclusion of road traffic accident, coroner Tim Brennand said: 'It may have been a matter of loss of concentration that caused him to collide with the HGV but we don't know what caused that loss of concentration.
'Muhammad was a young man who was a credit to his family.'Really?
