A man in his 30s has died after being hit by a lorry outside Wimbledon Station this evening.

Wimbledon Bridge is cordoned off directly outside the station’s main entrance and police have been directing pedestrians back through the station to an alternative exit.

Police have also blocked off access to Wimbledon town centre surrounding the main junction. A police tent has been put up near the traffic lights.

Wimbledon Guardian:

They are currently unable to say how long they think the road will be closed.

A police spokesman said: “Police were called to Wimbledon Bridge, at 7.50pm, to reports of a collision between a lorry and a pedestrian.

“The London Ambulance Service was called to the scene. A man in his 30s was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The driver stopped and has not been arrested. Officers are in process of informing next of kin.”
