Pensioner killed in Maida Vale tipper truck collision

The ‘West End Extra’ reports;

“A PENSIONER has died after a collision with a tipper truck in Maida Vale this afternoon (Monday).

The accident took place at the corner of Elgin Avenue and Chippenham Road just after midday and the road remains closed while police investigate.

The woman, believed to be in her 90s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Scotland Yard said they believe the woman was crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing when the truck collided with her.

The driver stopped at the scene and has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.

Any witnesses are being urged to call 020 8941 9011 or, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

This is the third fatality in the Chippenham Road/Harrow Road/Elgin Avenue area in the past 18 months and we have called on the Council and TfL to improve pedestrian crossing facilities and introduce a 20 mph speed limit.
