Don't want to speculate, but if they were turning right off Knights to take Crown Lane in direction of Streatham Common then the area where traffic waits to turn left/right across the junction is quite sketchy, especially for cyclists.
Edit: Added a screengrab from Google Maps. Lots of traffic. The driving around West Norwood and the surrounding areas can be... 'below-average' at the best of times.
Best not to speculate. Photos I saw on Twitter showed the blue sheets to the right of your streetview image. As if they were coming up from Streatham and it was just before the junction.
Fuck knows what happened or how, but we know someone lost their life.
