A 38-year-old man has become the sixth cyclist to die on London’s roads in just two months.
The 38-year-old man died in hospital five days after being critically injured in a late night collision with a car in Clerkenwell, central London.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision on Goswell Road at the junction with Percival Street just after midnight on Friday July 6th.
A Met Police spokesman said: “The cyclist, a 38-year-old man, was taken by paramedics to a north London hospital in a critical condition.
“He died on Wednesday. Next of kin are aware.
“The driver of the car stopped at the scene; he was not arrested.”
A 34-year-old cyclist was fatally injured in a collision with a lorry near the entrance to Battersea Park in south London during Monday’s evening rush hour.
Six cyclists have now died on the capital’s roads since May 9th. A total of 11 cyclists died in London last year.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
