  • Police closed southbound A10 this morning. Went past at 9am.
    Bike in the road behind a lorry just before the lights at the junction of the A10 and Broad Lane.
    No sign of the rider. An paramedic car was on site.
    Best wishes, rider.

    A cyclist has been rushed to hospital after a collision with a lorry on a major north London thoroughfare.

    A man in his forties suffered injured legs after a rush hour collision in High Road, Tottenham, shortly after 7am Thursday morning.

  • In the photograph in the Standard article, the lorry is pictured in the High Road at the junction with Broad Lane, its front wheels in the pedestrian crossing, with the picture taken from Broad Lane.

    No information on whether it was a left hook or something else. The lorry could have been swinging out to take the turn, but it's not clear.

    Best wishes to the rider.

  • The white bike l saw in the road was behind the lorry. No idea whether it belonged to the rider in question but I didn't see anyone around it so I guess it was?

  • Well, you usually can't infer much from what you saw after a crash. There are a number of possible reasons why it was there. Unfortunately, we also don't seem to get a lot of reporting on crashes after the first article any more, and that's usually very bare and based on the police press release. Before its coronavirus-related staff purge, the Standard usually sent a reporter to the scene who wrote a proper piece, and there were also often follow-up articles, but now they rarely do that any more, and neither do the local papers, mostly.
