Did you witness this collision and could you help?
A friend at work was knocked off her bike last week and hopes LCC can help track down any witnesses to the collision. The police have traced the driver but her account differs from my friend's so she would like to find any witnesses who may be willing to help. If anyone saw the collision would they be able to contact me as soon as possible via LCC?
"It was on Cycle Superhighways 7 on Thursday morning 10th April at around 8.35am and the collision occurred on the T-junction of Clapham Road and Dorset road (between Stockwell and Oval Tube stations)... It was a Mercedes estate car, dark colour (I would say off black). I was wearing a bright banana coloured ski jacket (v distinctive), red rucksack and grey bell round helmet – so I was easy to spot.
The cyclist who stopped to help me was in a light blue lycra short slieved cycling top, wearing a helmet and clear cycling glasses. I think he had a shaved head but couldn’t say for certain. He stopped for a couple of minutes to make sure I was okay, but I was pretty shaken and I can’t give you much more a description of him than that – didn’t think to get his details. ... I also made a crunch sound as I hit the car.
There was also a man and a women riding two vintage looking green bicycles (I had over took them earlier on my journey). I heard the women of the green bike say as she cycled past “that is the reason I don’t like cycling in London”."
