Cyclist dies after traffic collision in Bexley this morning

A 65 year old cyclist has died after a collision near Hall Place this morning.

The incident occurred on Bourne Road near the large roundabout that connects with the A220.

Police state that an ambulance crew was sent and an air ambulance though the cyclist sadly died at the scene.

There have been no arrests and police are appealing for witnesses. The London Ambulance Service state: “We were called at 7.59am this morning to reports of a road traffic collision on Bourne Road, Bexley. We sent an ambulance crew, two medics in cars and an incident response officer. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance. The first of our medics were at the scene in four minutes. Sadly, a man died at the scene.”

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the police on 101 or tweet @MetCC with the reference CAD1161/9MAR.

This area is pretty horrible on foot and cycle. A few times I’ve walked from Bexley to Bexleyheath via this route and it’s far from great on foot.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    Very sad news Murky, bikes aren’t without their opponents, but we need to remember cars are lethal weapons and in any collision it’s likely we cyclists will come off worse. My condolences to this persons family, a tragic loss.

    The man who died was the much loved Lollipop Man from Old Bexley School. A lovely man who will be sadly missed.
