A Hounslow bus driver has been found not guilty of causing the death of a 21-year-old motorcyclist by careless driving.
Darren Churchill, from Ashford in Surrey, was thrown off his motorcycle when he hit a single-decker travelling from Heathrow Airport to Hounslow just after 9pm on February 27, 2015.
On the second anniversary of Mr Churchill's death, Hussein Al-Shabib, 56, from Hounslow, went on trial accused of causing his death by careless driving at the Old Bailey.
On Monday March 6 he was cleared of the charge by a jury.
Prosecutor Kate Lumsdon had said during the trial Mr Al-Shabib, of Hounslow, was turning right at a traffic light junction in the A30 Great West Road into the Causeway when the incident happened.
She said: "Mr Al-Shabib turned across the path of Mr Churchill. Mr Churchill applied his brakes but it was too late. He crashed into the side of the bus and he was killed."
Mr Churchill had been riding in the opposite direction and had begun to cross the junction a fraction of a second after his light turned amber, "too soon for him to be expected to stop", the prosecutor claimed.
Despite the best efforts of other drivers, police and ambulance staff, there was nothing that could be done to save Mr Churchill, jurors were told.
