UPDATED: Police search for hit and run killer of 17 year old cyclist in Deptford

People in Deptford have been shocked by the hit-and-run killing of a popular 17-year-old cyclist, known locally as 'TJ'.

A silver Audi hit the cyclist on Deptford Church Street, near the junction with Bronze Street at around 5pm on Friday 23 March 2012.

The young man was airlifted to King's College Hospital in Denmark Hill, but he died soon after.

According to reports in the local press, the car sped off after the crash, but then turned around and stopped on the opposite carriageway before driving away again.

The car was later found abandoned, in nearby Watergate Street, SE8.

Deptford Church Street is a dual-carriageway used as a high-speed rat-run by drivers, and it has a bad crash record.

The fatal crash took place adjacent to the Sue Godfrey Nature Park in the borough of Lewisham.

Several locals on message boards have noted the sad connection between the recent death and this green space that was named in memory of a local campaigner who was killed while cycling in 1994 after being hit by a left-turning lorry.

News update: man arrested

The BBC are reporting that a 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop.

Reports suggest he handed himself in to police some time on Saturday, and has been bailed to appear in court in May.

Anyone who saw the crash or the car being abandoned should contact the Road Death Investigation Unit at Catford Traffic Garage on 020 8285 1574 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Whether the guy they arrested is the one who did it, or someone else. I hope the guilty party eventually gets the right sentence his time, rather then the pathetic ones normally given for the death of a cyclist or any other road user.
