Police appeal for footage after pedestrian hit by RideLondon cyclist dies in hospital

Collision took place in the Parson’s Green area

A 67-year-old woman who was hit by a cyclist during this year’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey sportive has died in hospital. Police are investigating the circumstances of the collision and are appealing for witnesses.

The London Evening Standard reports that a collision between a pedestrian and cyclist took place shortly after midday on July 30 on New King’s Road near to the junction with Guion Road.

The woman was taken to a West London hospital with serious head injuries but died on August 31. The male cyclist, who is in his 60s, was also hospitalised but subsequently discharged.

Detective Sergeant Alastair Middleton, from the Met's serious collision investigation unit, said: "In light of the sad news that the pedestrian in this collision has passed away, it is important that we understand more about the circumstances surrounding the collision from either members of the public or those working as part of the event.

“Please call into the incident room if you have information, footage or images that could benefit our investigation."

Anyone with information is asked to call 0208 543 5157, or the police 101 non-emergency number.

This year’s RideLondon also saw the death of a man taking part in the event. Maris Ozols, aged 67, died after sustaining a cardiac arrest on Cromwell Road, around 13 miles into the event.
