A teenage girl made a fatal mistake while riding her bicycle and was crushed under the wheels of a truck, an investigation has found.
Olivia Wojciechowska, 18, was cycling while using headphones and rode into the path of a 16-wheel delivery truck as it turned into the road she was crossing.
According to the final incident report, the girl was wearing fashionable, non-athletic clothing that provided “inadequate support” for the teenager’s breasts.
The shifting weight of the unrestrained breasts caused Olivia to lose her balance as she attempted to avoid the truck, the investigation found.
The young cyclist tumbled off her bike and landed in the path of the heavy goods vehicle as it was making a left-hand turn.
The unfortunate girl was dragged under the wheels of the truck and suffered “catastrophic crush injuries,” the report said.
Olivia Wojciechowska, an aspiring model who just turned 18, worked as a waitress in Salford, Greater Manchester. She was biking to her waitressing job at the time of the collision.
The teen “was not paying attention to the road” and rode her bike straight in front of the heavy goods vehicle, according to a motorist who witnessed the incident.
Friends told investigators that Olivia “always dressed fashionably” – even while biking to work.
But the young aspiring model refused to wear proper athletic attire, which would have held her bosom in place while cycling, as she thought this clothing was “unfashionable.”
On the day of the accident, the girl was not wearing a bra and was wearing a shirt that “provided inadequate support for the victim’s chest,” the incident report found.
When the 18-year-old girl saw the oncoming truck and frantically tried to stop, she was thrown off-balance by the weight of her own breasts swinging forward.
“Miss Wojciechowska applied the brakes, but forward momentum from her dangling breasts threw the victim over the handlebars,” the investigators said.
Witnesses said that the teen tumbled off her bike onto the pavement with a startled scream. The heavy goods vehicle continued forward and crushed the poor girl under its wheels.
Olivia Wojciechowska was dragged down the road and suffered severe crush injuries to her upper body and pelvic region.
Emergency crews extracted the teenager’s remains from under the 16-wheel delivery truck, but she was declared dead from a “massive haemorrhage.”
Authorities found broken headphones lying in the road, covered in the teen’s blood.
The coroner concluded that Olivia caused herself to go underneath the vehicle, sustaining unsurvivable injuries.
