Witnesses sought to fatal November 2016 Chelsea Embankment collision

Metropolitan Police issue appeal after 80-year-old pedestrian dies five months after collision with cyclist


Police are appealing for witnesses to a November 2016 collision between a pedestrian and cyclist on the Chelsea Embankment to come forward after an 80-year-old man died last month from the injuries he sustained in the incident.

Officers say that the collision happened on the carriageway at the junction of Chelsea Embankment and Chelsea Bridge Road at around 6pm on the evening of 10 November.

The pedestrian was taken to a hospital in south London where he remained in a critical condition before passing away on 5 April.

He lived alone in Kennington and police are still trying to trace his next of kin.

In the meantime, a coroner’s inquest has been opened and adjourned.

The male cyclist involved in the collision stopped at the scene and is said to be helping police with their enquiries.

Police have asked anyone who witnessed the collision or the events that led up to it to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 020 8543 5157 or via Twitter.
