Another day, another serious collision on Streatham High Road

I have spoken with police at the scene of this afternoon's collision.  It happened between a large vehicle and a pedestrian about 100 yards south of the St Leonard's Junction on Streatham High Road, about half way down to The Dip'.

The police I spoke to say they believe that the driver did not see the man, but the collision happened at fairly slow speed. Nevertheless the man was run over by the vehicle.

Police said they believe the injuries won't be fatal thankfully in this case, but that has still to be officially confirmed.

There was a fatality at that same spot several years ago.  There was also a fatality further up at the St Leonard's junction almost a year ago.

The campaign continues to make Streatham High Road safe.
