Tower Hamlets cyclist dies after lorry hit and run crash

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Peter McGreal on Saturday 25th June, four days after being run down by a lorry on Hackney road, Bethnal Green at 8.30am.  We send our deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

The driver of the lorry stopped to see what had happened and then drove off.  Police traced the lorry later that day and arrested the driver on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. 

There is concern that someone moved Peter's bicycle off the road after the crash, this allowed traffic to drive through the crash scene, possibly disturbing evidence of what actually happened.

Local cyclists and residents have questioned the recent re-design of this junction. It was changed from a narrow southbound lane into a very wide 12 metre road.  This change has attracted a large number of rat running tipper lorries onto Pritchard's road. 

These lorries have been prevented from rat running through Hackney by road narrowings and weight limits.  In the past four years two other cyclists have been killed by tipper lorries using that part of Hackney as a short cut.

Peter was a web designer working for London Metropolitan University at their City campus.  It is believed that he was on his way to work from his home in Walthamstow when he was run down.  The police Road Death Investigation Unit would like to hear from anyone with information about the crash, please call 020 8597 4874
