@Charlie_L would say they're just 'hard to see' spots. The word 'blind' is often misunderstood; very, very few people are completely blind in the sense that they can't see anything. It's similar with vehicles, and, of course, if drivers had a second person in the cab who could watch the nearside, that lack of visibility would matter even less.
This is a very unusual crash type for London. Multiple vehicle pile-ups happen here exceedingly rarely. Sadly, there were two fatalities in this incident.
It always gets to me how desperately unlucky people can get, just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
There was a crash at the junction of Brixton Road and Loughbrough Road in front of Brixton Jam this noon.
London Air Ambulance and the fire services with jaws of life were in attendance.
People hit by vehicles when stood at bus stops seems to happen way more regularly than it should.
Also a hard working motorist being on remand doesn’t happen very often.
