A cyclist who was airlifted to hospital after a collision with a dust cart remains in a critical condition as police appeal for witnesses.

The rush hour accident in Kew Foot Road by the busy A316 at about 8am today, July 21, caused traffic mayhem after the A316 was shut towards Richmond Circus.

Police say the area would have been very busy during the accident and have urged witnesses to come forward.

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.”

Police said the cyclist, who was taken to hospital suffering from head injuries, is in his 40s.

Enquiries continue.
