Police are asking people who witnessed the fatal collision involving a female cyclist and a lorry in Victoria on Thursday (February 19) to help them with their investigation.
The 36-year-old woman, who has not yet been formally identified, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics at the left-hand turn from Bressenden Place in Victoria Street just before 8am.
Her bike was seen being pulled underneath the Gordon Plants lorry in front of hundreds of commuters just by busy Victoria Station.
Witnesses described hearing a loud sound as her bike went underneath the tipper truck and the horror on the driver’s face as he climbed out of his cab.
He was not arrested but police are asking anybody who saw the collision or with any information to help them with their investigation.
A Met Police spokesman said: “The collision took place during rush-hour traffic and there were a number of people within the area.
"Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information is asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0208 543 5157 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
The woman’s next of kin have all been informed and a post-mortem is due to be scheduled soon.
