The Sun reports a cycle accident in Oval yesterday as England cricketer, Andrew Strauss was involved in a car accident with a passing 25 year old cyclist. An eye witness estimated that the cyclist was travelling at about 20 miles per hour when he hit Strauss' Jaguar. According to the Sun, the accident likely wrote off the bicycle in question and left a hefty dent in the car.
Fortunately, neither the driver nor cyclist was injured. It's not entirely clear from the Sun's article who was at fault, although the Sun does report that Strauss pulled across the bus lane.
The accident took place not far from Oval station where cyclist Catriona Patel was tragically killed in an accident involving a lorry in June 2009.
I'm trying to keep a close eye on accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists in and around SE11 (Kennington, Oval or Vauxhall and outskirts). I'd be grateful if readers could leave a comment or inform me on Twitter @SE11_lurker of accidents witnessed in the area.
