A Crouch Hill man has pleaded guilty to two driving offences over the hit and run crash that left Archway cyclist Josh Dey in hospital.
At Blackfriars' Crown Court on Tuesday, Sean Fagan, of Regina Road, admitted being at the wheel of a black BMW convertible that knocked Josh from his bike in Swain's Lane, Highgate on Easter Sunday - April 21 - this year.
The 29-year-old gave a guilty plea to two charges - one of failing to stop at the scene of an accident and another of dangerous driving.
Josh, 22, was left with a bleed on the brain after the April 1 crash, and told this newspaper that, although he loved cycling, he couldn't see himself back on a bike soon.
"I can't see being back on a bike this year. I don't want to get back on a bike because I don't want to think about getting hit by a car," he said.
