Cyclist in Collision with Lorry in Dalston

Emergency service after the collision at Dalston Junction.

Police and ambulance service were called at 4:45 pm after a  male cyclist  collided with a lorry on Kingsland Rd.

He was rushed to an East London hospital, where he is said to be in a critical condition.

Witnesses said he was hit by a left turning lorry ending with his bike going under the lorry. A poster on a popular cyclist message board who claims to be his ‘mate’, has posted the following:

“Just got a call from my friend in Whitechapel hospital. It’s my mate xxx who was hit.

He has a fractured pelvis and punctured lung and is currently in intensive care. they have put him under and he’s going for a CT scan.

His housemate happened to be riding past and xxx had told police his name before he passed out and his housemate just happened to ask the policemen.

Did anyone see what happened?

The man is still listed as critical according to a police spokesperson, this morning, 4 February. While there has not been an official request by police for witnesses, it appears some cyclists have called on the public to provide whatever information they may have.

  1. I have had to remove some comments left, which were followed by some very nasty emails.

    Obviously it appears to be you all (you know who you are, who no regard to the victim.

    In fact any other day to fit your agendas, you all would probably be banging on about freedom of speech.

    At ease!

  2. Care to explain what is going on here? What are these people so upset about?

  3. You’d think in an article about a critically injured person, even the Hackney Hive might want to take things a bit more seriously?

  4. I’m planning on posting something on my blog about this later today. Cgribbs shouldn’t you be back on the cycling forum with the other macabre members, who collectively thrive on each new accident, often pronouncing them dead when they are still alive.

    Shouldn’t you be focusing on the mans recovery instead of sending out negative vibes in the form of hate mail? He needs all the good vibes he can get, not lame busy bodies.

    It was members of the site that named him and gave out intimate details.

  5. I’ve never posted on that forum and have not sent out any hate mail or any other mail. Just think the tone of Hackney Hive’s post is misjudged.

  6. Duchess, I think you should be utterly shamed of yourself. I see you haven’t written anything on your precious blog yet. I suppose you now realise what has now happened.
    Hive, I hope you are happy with your nasty little insult.
    Despicable people.
