Tech 3 crew chief involved in the death of a motorcyclist at a French toll booth

COLIN EDWARDS' crew chief Guy Coulon has reportedly been charged with involuntary manslaughter after accidentally reversing the Tech 3 team truck over a motorcyclist at a French toll booth.

Coulon, who was driving the team HGV, was unable to see the 54-year-old motorcyclist and dragged the rider 10 metres to his death before the French crew chief realised something had happened.

Following the incident Coulon was detained by French police on charges of involuntary manslaughter.
