Cyclist loses leg after being hit by HGV

A 52 year old woman has had her leg amputated after being in a collision with a lorry at around 3.40pm in the afternoon.  The incident happened at a junction on a busy street and emergency services attended the scene to tend to the woman’s injuries.

According to witnesses the accident happened when the lorry turned left at a junction and Police have arrested the HGV driver, 23 on suspicion of causing injury by dangerous driving.

The female cyclist was rescued from beneath the lorry and rushed to a local trauma unit where her condition has been described “critical but stable” and “not life-threatening”.

This is yet more concerning news as this year there have been seven out of the eight cyclist deaths on London’s roads which involved HGV’s.
