Mr. Coyle provided immediate First Aid and kept the man’s neck immobilised to keep him was stable and comfortable until the ambulance arrived.
A spokesperson for London Ambulance said they were called to the scene after a report of a collision involving a car and a cyclist. A man in his thirties was taken to Charing Cross Hospital, where his condition was not believed to be serious.
A local cyclist contacted us to say he was not surprised there was an accident at that junction which is extremely dangerous to cyclists due to the confluence of buses, cars and pedestrians.
He said he always dismounts and walks up Dolman Road to get to the High Road to avoid the danger.
