A man has been arrested over a cyclist hit and run crash in Kingsland High Street that has left a woman with critical injuries.

The 30-year-old is in custody after he called police at 11pm last night. Officers arrested him at a property in Islington on suspicion of causing bodily harm, failing to stop and failing to report a collision.

The woman, 56, was hit by a rider on a “Specialized” electric-assisted bike as she tried to cross the road near the Rio Cinema just before 5.10pm on Tuesday.

She was taken to hospital where she remains with what Scotland Yard called life-threatening injuries. Her next of kin have been contacted.

Police found the bike involved dumped in Approach Close, Stoke Newington, later on Tuesday.

Officers are still appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to call them on 020 8597 4874 or call 101 quoting CAD 5837 of August 28.
