Sydenham Road currently closed off to traffic between Silverdale and Cobb's. Elderly gentleman run over by hit-and-run cyclist!

Police at Kirkdale this afternoon

Post by gillyjp »

Anyone know what was going on this afternoon? Firstly there was a policeman standing on the pedestrian crossing near The Pavilion and directing the passing traffic around him and later there was a sign directing traffic around the pavement edge. Then when I drove out of Spring Hill they had taped the area all off. I had to detour through Penge which was a pain.

It must have happened around 1.30pm as I noticed a hefty bike (police?) with hazard lights that from a distance appeared to be across the road.

I wondered what was going on as the diversion sign said 'collision' but no broken glass. This was the scene as I ran for the 14:22 train:

Hit and run cyclist . A few years ago unthinkable, now not a surprise.

I do hope the gentleman recovers.

Really?
A few years ago, unthinkable?


Like all the hit and run vehicle drivers.
