A 65-year-old cyclist is in hospital in a critical condition after a collision with an e-scooter rider on Victoria Embankment.

Officers and paramedics were called to the collision shortly before 10pm on April 29, opposite Somerset House, where they found the cyclist seriously injured.

He remains in hospital from his “serious” injuries nearly a month on.

The e-scooter rider involved was one of a group of around seven people riding the devices. Police said the e-scooter involved had off-road wheels.

The rider was wearing a helmet with a visor, and carrying a rucksack with LED lights on the rear showing a ‘Pacman’ logo.

Police said the rider stopped and asked the man if he was okay, possibly in an Eastern European accent, before riding off.

On Wednesday, officers from the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said they would like to speak with anyone who saw the collision or captured it on dash-cam footage.

No arrests have been made.

Witnesses are being asked to call police on 101 quoting reference CAD 7695/29Apr. Alternatively, tweet @MetCC or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
