Police are appealing for witnesses after a serious collision involving a cyclist and a dustcart that has left the cyclist critically ill in hospital this morning in Richmond.
The accident happened at around 8am this morning when a dustcart collided with the cyclist on the A316 on Kew Foot Road at the junction with St John's Grove in Richmond.
The London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance were called to the scene and the male cyclist, aged in his early 40s, was taken to an East London hospital suffering serious head injuries.
The driver stopped at the scene and was not arrested, although Police are now looking for witnesses to find out what happened.
Detective Sergeant John Hartfree, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit based at Merton, said: "The road would have been very busy at the time of the collision and I believe that a number of people would have seen the incident.
"I would urge anyone with information to contact us on the Witness Appeal number 020 8543 5157."
