A female pedestrian  has been left fighting for her life following a road collision on Clapton Common near the Stamford Hill junction, outside  Barclays bank this morning.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at 7.19 to reports of a car in collision with a pedestrian. Officers, the London Ambulance Service and the London Air Ambulance attended and found a woman with life-threatening injuries.”

Hackney Police and TFL traffic news have both warned of slow traffic in the area.

Clapton Common A10 west bound is currently closed while investigations continue and buses are being diverted. There are long delays from Upper Clapton Road and other nearby routes. Heavy traffic is anticipated on adjacent streets, as drives seek alternative routes.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.

After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell ) Darcy (a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix now deceased but can’t remove their names) and two Black cats she adopted December 2021, Desmond and Tutu. She is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
