Apparently a woman was run over a little while ago by a Tesco lorry turning left into Maud Chadburn Place by Clapham South tube station. I heard that she was a cyclist. There are lots of emergency service vehicles in attendance, and an air ambulance turned up about 20 minutes ago. Not sure of any further details.
Terrible - fingers crossed for the rider.
Here is a bit more info, confirming that she's a cyclist:
Thanks for the update. Hope she is ok.
I doubt very much that she's OK, but let's await further reporting.
The News Shopper reports that "her injuries are not life threatening or life changing":
Hope that is true
An update. Warning: Contains graphic details about how the crash unfolded and her hand injury. This does seem to me 'life-changing' as it has caused her to be unable to work. I hope she'll be able to do her job again.
