Moped rider dies in hospital after crash with truck

Detectives are appealing for information after a moped rider died in hospital. The rider was involved in a collision with a truck near an Asda petrol station in White Hart Lane, Tottenham on Wednesday November 4. The emergency services, including an air ambulance, were called at around 10.55am, with the 59-year-old suffering a serious head injury.

The man was taken to an east London hospital where he has been critically ill. The Metropolitan Police confirmed he died on Wednesday November 10. The man’s family are aware.

Police say the driver of the truck involved in the crash stopped at the scene. He was arrested on suspicion of driving whilst under the influence of drugs. He was taken to a west London police station and was released under investigation.

Detective Sergeant Becca Collens, of the Met’s roads and transport policing command, said: “This collision took place in daylight hours on a busy road and it is likely that someone with dash cam will have captured it on their equipment. “If you were in the White Hart Lane area mid-morning on the 3rd of November please do check your dash cam for footage. “Similarly, there were a number people on the Asda petrol station forecourt at the time of the incident and I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision and hasn’t yet spoken to police.

If you saw anything, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
