No where did I say "convicted" which implies that they were formally charged and sentenced.

Taken from an official Metropolitan Police investigation..
- A vehicle may have blocked the Mercedes on its final journey thereby
preventing it from making a turn-off and essentially forcing it into the Alma
- The existence of a bright white flash may have unlawfully contributed to the collision.
- Eyewitness evidence indicates that there were vehicles following the Mercedes, and
that there was also a vehicle that prevented the Mercedes from making a turn and thereby forced it to enter the Alma tunnel a route that took them away from their intended destination immediately.
Taken from an eyewitness testimonial..
"This car was clearly being chased by several, I would say between four and six, motorcycles. There were two riders on some of the bikes. These motorcycles were sitting on the vehicle’s tail and were trying to get alongside it. At the time, I thought it could be a police chase. I noticed that the vehicle, which continued travelling in the left hand lane, was veering from side to side and having trouble keeping its line. Clearly, the driver of the vehicle was being hindered by the motorbikes."
Another testimonial from another witness:
"The bikes were in a cluster, like a swarm around the Mercedes. At this point, I just thought nothing of it, as it would not be uncommon to see this type of aggressive behaviour in the US."
"When I got there I saw flashes from photographers, which attracted my attention. The flashes came from a black scooter, there were two people on it. It was the pillion passenger who was taking photos…"
I should point out that the motorcyclist that I saw pursuing the Mercedes was taking
photos of it in the tunnel, I could see the reflections of flashes from a camera.’
‘… about twenty photographers were taking non-stop flash photos, the car was lit up with the flashes.’
But then again.. purely speculation.
