Cyclist seriously injured in Kennington bus collision

11:28 12 November 2013

A cyclist is in a serious but stable condition after a collision with a bus in south London during this morning’s rush hour.

Police said they were called at around 8.45am to reports of the incident on Kennington Park Road, at the junction with Kennington Road.

The 46-year-old cyclist was taken to a south London hospital, a Scotland Yard spokesperson said. Early reports described the man being in a critical condition, but a 11.30am update confirmed his condition was now “serious but stable”.

The driver of the bus, which stopped at the scene, has not been arrested.

Transport for London said Kennington Park Road northbound, at the junction of Kennington Road remains closed as a result of the collision.

Yesterday, police confirmed that respected planner Francis Golding became the tenth cyclist to die this year on London’s roads when he passed away on Friday following an incident on Southampton Row.

And last night, bystanders had to lift the car off a cyclist trapped under the wheels of a vehicle following a collision on Commercial Street.

The woman was rushed to hospital as a priority.
