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.
