Fatal Accident At Elephant & Castle London!

A Scotland Yard spokesperson said officers were called at 12.34pm today to a collision involving a lorry and pedestrian at the roundabout. He added: “Police, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance are all in attendance. “The woman, believed to be in her eighties, was pronounced dead at the scene.”


Videos of the air ambulance landing circulated on social media around 1pm. Traffic chaos ensued into the early afternoon as the busy roundabout remained completely closed. 
Police took to twitter to urge road users to take alternative routes through the area today. Local Southwark police tweeted at around 1pm to say: “Elephant & Castle junction at New Kent Road is closed both directions due to a serious accident.” They added: “Please avoid the area.” One local university student posted on Twitter: “So glad I didn’t go to university today, major accident outside it on the elephant and castle roundabout. The whole place is carnage.” Any witnesses to the incident are asked to call Scotland Yard on 101.
