I need to hear from anybody who witnessed the collision or the moments leading up to it. I am particularly keen to speak with a pedestrian who was crossing Delancey Street at the time of the collision, and a cyclist who was riding a short distance ahead of the cyclist injured.

In a statement, Network Rail said: "Over the coming days Network Rail engineers will be working tirelessly to reopen the railway as quickly as possible. This work will involve large pieces of plant and equipment, including a very large road crane.
"We will be keeping the local community and passengers up to date with the situation as our work progresses."
A man from Camden has been accused of developing chemical weapons for al-Shabab - the group behind the deadly attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi.
24 year old Madhi Hashi is allegedly a member of an "elite al-Shabab suicide bombing unit" according to The Times newspaper.
Al-Shabab are linked to al-Qaida and claimed responsibility for the attack on Westgate Mall in Nairobi in which 67 people were killed.
Hashi is currently awaiting trial in New York, accused of travelling to Somalia to receive weapons training from the group and being "deployed in combat" for them.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: "The FCO became aware of Hashi's detention by US authorities on terrorism-related charges in 2012."
Somalian-born Hashi came to Britain in 1995 and became a citizen in 2004, but his citizenship was revoked last year by Home Secretary Theresa May.
