This is the moment an illegal immigrant cyclist fled after causing the death of a hospital worker after crashing into him running a red light.
Albanian Ermir Loka, 23, mowed down Peter McCombie, 72, at around 15 mph as the HR administrator was making his way home from the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.
Instead of apologising to his victim, he pointed to his damaged bike, saying to him: ‘Look at what you’ve done!’ before driving away.
The CCTV of Ermir Loka has been made public and he was imprisoned for two years, and his trial heard that he bolted because he feared being deported, but because he’s now been in jail awaiting trial for a year, he could walk free, as his time served in jail could be taken off his sentence, and he could walk free on licence.
Mr McCombie’s family said in a statement that the driver left Peter laying in a busy road, severely injured, and thought only of himself at the time, and that this kind of cowardice was beyond contempt, and that the hatred that they felt towards him was beyond words.
Peter McCombie’s head hit the pavement so hard it fractured his skull and damaged his brain.
He also sustained a fractured jaw bone, a broken rib and bruising to his legs after the collision in Bow Road last July 3.
Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that veteran NHS staffer Peter McCombie was taken to hospital for treatment, but died from his injuries eight days later despite the heroic efforts of medical personnel.
The trial heard Rebecca Guyther was walking down Bow Road with her daughter when she saw the accident and called for an ambulance.
In a witness statement, she said that the guy was pointing at his bike and saying something like, “What were you doing?’ and things like, ‘Look at what you’ve done!”.’
She said the gentleman was on the ground and had his eyes open but wasn’t saying anything, and Ms Guyther added that she saw the cyclist’s face and he seemed annoyed.
Loka, who’s originally from Albania, was cleared by a jury of manslaughter but convicted of causing bodily harm by reckless or furious driving earlier this month following a retrial.
The builder got the highest punishment for the crime of two years but could be released imminently as he’s been in jail since he turned himself into the police a year ago, and this is what they call assisting illegals.
But not all illegal immigrants cause accidents like this, and they shouldn’t all be tarred with the same brush because it could have been anyone responsible for this incident, not just an illegal.
However, London is full of them and takeaway delivery companies make no checks on their drivers, and many have no insurance, licence or any idea of how UK roads work or the law, and if they get into an accident YOU will be left on your own, and most of them ride on motorcycles on provisional licences which then voids the insurance as they need a full licence to ride for commercial purposes.
At the end of the day, a person is dead because this guy was illegal and didn’t want to get deported, it’s rather simple really. But should we be blaming him or should we be blaming our government because that’s where the burden lies?
These illegals are taking an opportunity to make a better life for themselves, which our government are allowing by letting them in.
