Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command investigating a serious collision involving a car and cyclist, where the driver failed to stop, have released an image of a vehicle whose driver may have vital information.

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at around 23:35hrs on Wednesday, 10 January to reports of a car in collision with a cyclist on Camden Road at the junction of Royal College Road - opposite Camden Road Overground Station.

Officers attended. The male cyclist, aged 47, was taken to an east London hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

The driver failed to stop at the scene. The car believed to have been involved in the collision was recovered nearby in Kings Terrace, NW1.

Just after the collision, the suspect vehicle drove into Plender Street, entering the one-way street from the wrong direction.

There, the vehicle nearly collided with a black cab which had to take a sharp turn to avoid contact.

The cab then turned right into Bayham Street, NW1.

Officers investigating the Camden Road collision are appealing for the driver of this other vehicle - a large SUV, possibly a Mercedes Vito Taxi - to come forward. Officers believe he may have information that could assist the inquiry.

If you witnessed the collision or have any information about the vehicle involved, the vehicle pictured or anything that may assist the investigation, call the Met's Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 020 8991 9555.
