Detectives are renewing their appeal for information just over one week on from a serious fail to stop collision in Croydon.

Officers were called by the London Ambulance Service at 06:19hrs on Saturday, 23 June, to reports of a collision between a car and a cyclist on Whitehorse Road at the junction with Northbrook Road in Selhurst.

The 60-year-old cyclist was taken to a south London hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

Detectives have established that the collision occurred at 06:13hrs on 23 June. The car – which was a black 2 series BMW – did not stop at the scene.

Detective Sergeant Jo Densham, from the Met’s Road and Transport Policing Command, said: “After one week, the cyclist sadly remains in a very serious condition in hospital. I am urging the driver to get in touch and help us build a picture of what happened in the lead up to this incident.”

Officers are appealing for the driver of the BMW to come forward. They are also asking any witnesses or anyone with information to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit at Catford on 020 8285 1574.

Enquiries continue. There has been no arrest at this stage.
