Left-turning lorry driver runs down woman cyclist in Peckham

This remarkable incident was spotted by a blogger but so far seems not to have been reported by the local paper or any other news service.

This morning [2 June] a woman was knocked off her bike by a lorry turning left into Bellendon Road in Peckham. Police at the scene say that the hospital 'is doing all they can to help her': the mangled remains of her bike were too poignant for Londonist to go photograph - we are but amateur bloggers rather than hardened newshounds. Peckham High Street is likely to remain closed for another hour or so.
