  • The pedestrian was run over by a lorry not a car. It was a horrific accident. The vehicle was not speeding Hackney gazette might want to look at the authorities improving safety at this stretch of road. A friend of ours was run over by a speeding car just 8 weeks ago leaving her in hospital, she could have easily been killed. they need to install barriers up to the crossing and speed cameraswarning lights from stretch of road.
