Moped rider killed on Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham
A 31-year-old man was killed on Whalebone Lane South, Dagenham yesterday after crashing into a lampost and street sign.
The victim, who lived in Romford but has not been named by police, was riding on a moped when he mounted the pavement just before 4pm yesterday afternoon.
The momentum carried both the moped and the driver along the pavement until they hit a street sign and a lampost.
A member of the public carried out CPR on the man but he was pronounced dead at the scene 25 minutes later.
Police are not ruling out the possibility that he was on the pavement after being struck by another vehicle.
