May 25 2010 By Dan Hodges
A Fulham man was killed after being hit by a lorry on a busy red route through central London.
Everton Smith, 48, of Brookville Road, died in the collision on Saturday morning, at the junction of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Drummond Gate in Westminster.
Police and paramedics were called but Mr Smith was pronounced dead at the scene at around 11.30am.
Traffic officers are now appealing for witnesses to the crash to come forward. Sergeant Simon Seeley from the Collision Investigation Unit said he is keen to hear from passengers on board a 436 bus, heading north towards Victoria station at the time of the accident, who may have seen the collision.
A post mortem examination was due to take place today (25) at Horseferry Road Mortuary, and an inquest will be opened at a later date.
No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is asked to call the witness appeal line on 020 8285 1574.
