I am really disturbed by the court decision in this case and feel justice is not being served by the acquittal of the defendant.. My deepest sympathy goes out to the bereaved family and friends

Incorrect. The cyclist was cleared of manslaughter but found guilty of causing bodily harm by "wanton or furious driving" an old fashioned term for an offence causing injury that is the closest equivalent to the 'dangerous driving' of a motor vehicle.

That was the verdict.

Sentencing (up to 2 years in prison or a fine) to be decided.
