A 70-year-old cyclist was flown to hospital in an air ambulance after being hit by a car in Stroud Green Road yesterday.
Police were called at about 1.15pm following a collision between the woman and the vehicle.
A Met Police spokesperson today said her injuries aren’t “life threatening”.
Lorena, 51, who wouldn’t give her last name, works at the Mind charity shop near the scene of the collision, and ran to the victim’s aid.
She told the Gazette the incident was “upsetting” because the injured cyclist was “bleeding”.
