Woman sustains life-threatening injuries in Finsbury Park collision
A woman has been left in a life threatening condition after a collision with a motorbike in Finsbury Park this morning (Friday).
The 32-year-old was in collision with a silver CCM bike as she crossed Seven Sisters Road towards Finsbury Park Road at around 8.20am.
Seven Sisters road was closed in both directions as police, paramedics, and the air ambulance raced to the scene.
Jose Fernandes, 31, who lives in the area and tended to the victim while she was waiting for an ambulance, said: “I was walking out of the Tube. I heard the motorbike screeching and trying to stop. I heard a big bang and when I looked round the bike had crashed.
“I saw her on the floor and a few people approached her but I think they were scared by all the blood and they ran away.

“I went to see if she was okay. She was bleeding from her head and ear, and her eye was so swollen she couldn’t open it.
“But I think she will be okay, I hope so, but I am not a doctor. When I fist got there she was trying to stand up, which I know you shouldn’t do.”
