A coroner found that a cyclist who died in Victoria last summer was killed in a crash with a tipper truck.
Dr Katharine Giles was cycling to work at University College London (UCL) when she was involved in a collision on 5 August.
It happened during the morning rush hour at the junction between Victoria Street and Palace Street.
Witnesses at the inquest said the scientist and lecturer was in an HGV blind spot on Victoria Street when the incident occurred.
The lorry was indicating that he was turning left and its audio warning was sounding, the inquest was told.
The coroner recorded a verdict of traumatic road death.
Ms Giles was the second cyclist to be killed in 2013.
