Just hours earlier, a cyclist in his 20s was hit by a bus in Battersea. Speaking to the Evening Standard, eyewitness Franco Romeo said:
"He was on the stretcher. They kept him there for a long time. I felt very bad because he was not moving at all. He looked in very bad shape. It was very serious."
Police say the drivers in both incidents stopped at the scene, and no one has been arrested.
