Police appeal for information after woman is hit by lorry in Stamford Hill

Traffic police are appealing for information after a woman was left with serious injuries after being hit by a lorry in North London on the 16th february – the second pedestrian casualty in Hackney in less than a week.

The London Ambulance Service and London Air Ambulance were called and Chris Hawkswell, of the London Ambulance Service, tweeted: “An ambulance, duty officer & LDNairamb medical team are at an RTC on Tottenham High Road, a pedestrian has been knocked down by a lorry.”

The woman is still being treated at a North London hospital and is reported to be in a stable condition.

Police said the lorry stopped at the scene and road closures along the A10 were in place – bringing traffic along Hackney’s neighbouring roads to a halt.

Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Constable Clare Bevis, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Alperton Traffic Garage, said: “This is a serious collision that happened on a busy road. It is very important we find out exactly how this occurred and the events leading up to it.

“If anyone saw the collision or knows anything about what happened please contact us.”

There have been no arrests.

This comes after a male pedestrian in his 40s was hit by a lorry on Friday, February 13 on the junction of Clapton Common and Oldhill Street.

He was taken to Royal London Hospital to be treated for head injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Alperton Traffic Garage on 020 8991 9555.
