A LORRY driver who struck down an 88-year-old woman who then died has been given community service.

Delivery driver Krystian Filip Zelazny, 35, of Hawkshead, Northamptonshire, struck Ada Hepplewhite as she was crossing Church Street in Enfield Town last July.

Mrs Hepplewhite, who is known to have a son, Clive, was crossing the road near the pedestrian crossing and pushing a shopping trolley when the accident happened.

She was taken to the Royal London Hospital but died on Sunday July 19 from her multiple injuries.

Zelazny has been given 250 hours community service, disqualified from driving for 12 months and had his license endorsed.

He pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving on April 9 and was sentenced last Friday at Wood Green Crown Court.
