A CYCLIST was seriously injured in a rush-hour collision in Norbury this morning. Police were called to London Road at the junction with Roche Road just before 8am to reports of a collision between a van and bicycle. A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: ""We were called at 7.51am today to reports of a road traffic collision involving a cyclist and a car on London Road. "We sent a responder in a car and an ambulance crew. "Staff treated a 35-year-old man for back pain and he was taken as a priority to St George's Hospital." Originally, police said his injuries were life-threatening but the cyclist's condition is now improving. Road closures put in place at the scene have now been lifted. The bike remained entirely intact but the van's windscreen was smashed in by the collision with the cyclist. It is the second crash involving a cyclist in the space of a month in Croydon, after Roger de Klerk died outside East Croydon Station on November 12 when his bike went under a 410 bus. There have been a spate of other fatal crashes across involving cyclists across London in recent weeks, prompting a fresh debate on cycle safety.
