today’s Forest Road smash victim was Carlo Cudicini

A breaking news postscript to my earlier post today.

The Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini is in hospital with "possibly life-changing" injuries after crashing his BMW motorbike today.

The 36-year-old hit a Ford Fiesta at around 10.30am on Forest Road, Walthamstow, east London and is being treated for fractured wrists and an injured pelvis.

The crash happened on the pink “30” carriageway marking to the right of the first obstructive sign in this photograph, which I took last April (the roadworks signs have since gone).

This blog has long maintained a label for the poor cycling conditions, crashes and other stuff to be regularly encountered on Forest Road.
