It always seems to be commercial vehicles involved in these incidents. Does anyone have any statistics on commercial vehicles versus private cars involved in fatal accidents in London?

Look here http://road.cc/content/news/27567-lorries-should-be-banned-cities-say-re... - not quite what you are asking but close: 4% of traffic accounts for over 40% of fatal accidents.
