What is this about?

Report from Evening Standard:

Fédérica Baldassa, 26, was knocked down by a Greggs delivery truck near Bloomsbury Square as she cycled home on Friday evening.

Italian-born Ms Baldassa moved to London last year to pursue her dream of working in the British fashion industry.

She was cycling back to Whitechapel in east London after meeting a friend in Oxford Circus when the collision happened. The fashion buyer became the third cyclist killed on the capital’s roads this years.
