Motorcyclists injured in separate incidents
Two motorcyclists were injured in separate accidents on Chiswick High Road this afternoon (January 24).
The police said a 16-year old motorcyclist was injured when he was hit by an oncoming car which was overtaking a bus. He was thrown in the air and landed on the bonnet of the car shattering the windscreen before landing on the road. The accident happened at around 4pm on the Chiswick High Road near the junction with Duke Road.
Staff from The Eye Studio rushed out to help and assisted the teenager into the shop until the ambulance arrived.
In a second incident, only a short distance away just past Dukes Avenue, and in the space of a few minutes, a motorcyclist was thrown off his bike when a driver pulled out from a parked position on the High Road, according to police. Staff from a nearby flower shop came out to assist as he lay on the ground until the ambulance arrived.
It is understood neither suffered life changing injuries. A local police spokesman praised the shops for their help in coming to the assistance of both victims.
There was some disruption to traffic on the High Road for a time.
"Chiswick High Road is a very busy place and we would really ask people to be vigilant", said a police spokesman.
