Fatal accident in Queen Caroline Street
A CYCLIST has died after a collision with a lorry in Queen Caroline Street.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the Hammersmith street at 8.24am on Thursday morning to find the biker, believed to be a woman in her 20s, dead at the scene.
The road was closed for most of the day as traffic officers investigated the cause of the crash and quizzed witnesses.
A police tent was put up and a waste collection truck also cordoned off after the collision.
One woman, who lives on the Queen Caroline Estate but asked not to be named, said: "We were told it was a young woman who has hit.
"It is really sad because she is probably a local girl and just cycling to work and going about her business.
"This road can be dangerous at times because it can get very congested and our hearts just go out to her family and friends."
Police have yet to name the victim or inform their next of kin.
A police spokesman said: "We were called at 8.24am to a fatal collision between a cyclist and a lorry. Investigations into the cause of the accident are continuing."
More as we get it.
