Pedestrian Hit In North Cheam

Updated (18th Dec)

A twelve year old girl is in hospital with head and leg injuries after being hit by a car at the pedestrian crossing at Chatsworth Road on Malden Road in North Cheam. The accident occurred at 6:22pm yesterday evening and roads were closed until 9:50pm while the police conducted their investigation.

Malden Road was closed to through traffic between London Road (A24) and Chatsworth Road and to all traffic between Priory Road and Chatsworth Road. Priory Road was also closed to through traffic.

Bus routes 93,151,213 and X26 were diverted and there are delays on Cheam Common Road backing up towards Central Road.

It is always distressing to find out that someone has been hurt and the blog wishes the girl, whose injuries are luckily not thought to be life changing, a full recovery as quickly as possible.
