A cyclist had to be extracted from under a car this evening, following a horrific accident outside Albion Parade, along Albion Road near the corner of  Clissold Road, at about 7:20pm this evening.

Eyewitness described how the cyclist, a male in his twenties, was dragged about 5 metres under the car, which then mounted the pavement with the cyclist still trapped underneath.

Another eyewitness, Karam Filfilan, who lives three flats away from the incident, told Hackney Hive;   “I was walking back to my flat when I heard the screams,  pretty sure it was a passerby screaming “stop” and “oh my god”.

The freelance travel journalist said other eyewitnesses account suggested the driver pulled out of a T junction and hit the cyclist, who hit the bonnet of the car.

He said: “The cyclist was pulled under the vehicle which mounted the pavement, leaving him stuck under a wheel”.

Eyewitness Karam Filflan  sent the following tweets to Hackney Hive:

 

 

UPDATE 7:00 AM  23-05-13  A police spokesperson has told Hackney Hive, the cyclist in stable condition with no life threatening injuries.  The driver stopped at the scene and there have been  no arrests.  Investigations are ongoing.

    There was a serious cyclist accident in Lordship Park last night. The road was cordoned off for some time.

    Thanks for making me aware

    2013-06-01 Lordship park N16

    Rider of a green hybrid, attended to by ambulance. Awake and vocal, large bruise/cut to his forehead. Silver hatchback stopped in left hand (eastbound) lane with major damage to its windscreen. The bike’s forks were bent in towards the frame, front wheel destroyed.
    A witness who attended to him before the ambulance arrived said he had cuts to his back and knees too. He had no shirt on but I don’t know if it had been removed by the ambulance crew.
    Hopefully he is not too seriously injured and will recover fully and soon

    Hi there,

    I’m the cyclist involved in the 22/05 accident. I am recovering well and got away with far fewer injuries than everyone thought and am very, very lucky. All I can say is my helmet really did save me as the guy drove over my head amongst other body parts! So just a thought for those who don’t cycle with a helmet; they really do work, pls consider wearing one. I have the pictures to prove it if the Hackney Hive would like to do a piece on it?

    A massive thank you to all who helped in any way shape or form. Really appreciate it!

    Chrish
