Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

A PEDES­TRIAN who was rushed to hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous head in­juries af­ter a col­li­sion with a cy­clist dur­ing RideLon­don has died.

The 67-year-old was taken to a west Lon­don hos­pi­tal on Sun­day July 30 fol­low­ing the crash at the Pru­den­tial RideLon­don event, but died a month later on Au­gust 31.

Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice of­fi­cers were called at just af­ter noon to New King’s Road and Guion Road, in Par­sons Green.

The Lon­don Am­bu­lance Ser­vice was also called to the crash, which left a male cy­clist in his 60s need­ing hos­pi­tal treat­ment.

He was taken to a west Lon­don hos­pi­tal where he was treated for mi­nor in­juries and was sub­se­quently dis­charged.

The pedes­trian died in hos­pi­tal on Thurs­day Au­gust 31. Her next of kin have been in­formed and a post mortem will be held in due course.

Of­fi­cers are ap­peal­ing for any in­for­ma­tion and wit­nesses to come for­ward to help with their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Alas­tair Mid­dle­ton, from the Se­ri­ous Col­li­sion In­ves­ti­ga­tion Unit, said: “In light of the sad news that the pedes­trian in this col­li­sion has passed away, it is im­por­tant that we un­der­stand more about the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the col­li­sion from ei­ther mem­bers of the pub­lic or those work­ing as part of the event.

“Please call into the in­ci­dent room if you have in­for­ma­tion, footage or im­ages that could ben­e­fit our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

En­quiries con­tinue into the cir­cum­stances of the in­ci­dent.
