Dalston pedestrian involved in collision with e-bike rider tried to cross when lights were green

Cyclist involved in collision released under investigation

Footage published on The Sun website shows that the pedestrian involved in a hit-and-run collision with an e-bike rider in Dalston on Tuesday tried to rush across the road while traffic lights were on green.

The woman, named by The Sun as 56-year-old Cihan Sakine, can be seen rushing into the road, presumably looking to get across during what she thought was a gap in the traffic. She appears not to have seen the approaching e-bike rider.

Yesterday we reported that a 30-year-old man had been arrested. He fell to the ground as a result of the collision but can be seen carrying the damaged e-bike away a short time later.

According to a worker at the nearby Vape shop: “He ran down the street then turned left by the cinema. People were shouting ‘wait, wait’ but he didn’t. People were mainly attending to the injured woman as she was bleeding a lot from the head.”

The e-bike rider contacted police late on Wednesday and was arrested on suspicion of causing bodily harm, failing to stop and failing to report a collision. He has since been released under investigation.

Sakine remains in hospital with life-threatening injuries. A friend said: “We are all praying for Cihan but the doctors said she is in a bad way and we are all hoping she can pull through. She is very poorly and things do not look good at the moment.”

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
