Anyone know what was happening on Tower Bridge road?
I saw around 3 police cars and 2 vans screaming up the wrong side of the street on the way to work.
By the time I got to Borough High St another van and car were attempting to navigate up Borough High St before turning down Dover St to presumably head up Tower Bridge Road.
I swear I also saw a chinook flying above/near the Shard but that may be unrelated.
That spot has a long history of road accidents I am sure? Does any one keep a record now. In the good old days there was a sign outside the town Hall in Walworth road, that kept a tally of road accidents, fatal and non-fatal. Does southwark still have a road safety DEpt.,?
I spoke to a lady who saw the accident. She said that the girl looked to be in her twenties and was dragged under a lorry. According to the person who saw it, the girl didn't make it. Seems like yet another fatal accident involving a cyclist and a lorry.
I was told by a passer by who happened to be a client of mine (who I presume was told by someone else) that the person was crushed between a car and a lorry; apparently it was the driver of the car's fault and they drove away after the accident.
Could be Chinese whispers so I would not take this as fact until confirmed by the police.
